Going to a high school reunion this summer? How long has it been since you saw your former classmates? When you think about it, the answer might surprise you. After graduation we all go our separate ways. And it’s just so easy to lose touch.
This summer, people across the country will reconnect with friends they haven’t seen in more than a decade. Getting ready for a high school reunion can be an exciting experience. You’re eager to see everyone and reminisce about old times. But the weeks leading up to the big day can be surprisingly stressful.
Sometimes the thrill of catching up with classmates is overshadowed by feelings of apprehension.
How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? The holiday stirs up a myriad of mixed emotions. Some people see it as a romantic occasion to spend with their significant other. And some see it as a day to celebrate being single.
At PeopleFinders, we think of Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to share your life with all the people you love. Family, friends, spouses, significant others and everyone who brightens your world.
Look back on your life. How many relationships have been hurt or destroyed by misunderstandings and arguments? For most of us, even one is too many.
We all have issues with other people from time to time. It’s human nature. But sometimes even minor disagreements are allowed to fester for years. They can ruin great relationships and tear loved ones apart. If we really look inside ourselves and ask which is more important – being “right” or saving the relationship – then we’ll probably want to fix things fast.
August 25 is the perfect opportunity.
In 2008, a 3-year-old boy named Peng Wenle was kidnapped. It happened on the street in front of his family’s small business. The boy’s father, Peng Gaofeng, feared he’d never see his beloved son again.
Newborn Carlina White had a fever. When it hit 104 degrees, her parents immediately took her to the hospital. As Carlina’s mother waited for news, she was met by a nurse. The woman was calm and supportive. She told Joy that everything was fine, and suggested she go home to rest.
Even when Carmen was just a little girl, she always wondered why her mother seemed so sad. Carmen would ask now and then, but was always told things were fine. Deep down, however, Carmen knew they weren’t.
At an early age, Carmen learned the difficult truth. Her grandmother died of cancer when her mother was just a little girl. When it happened, Carmen’s mother was sent to live in a new home. Her aunt was sent elsewhere.
Family. Strength. Home.
We all long to be with our loved ones. To be in a place where we are warm, safe and cared for. We find strength in the family and friends who share our lives. And we miss the people we’ve lost touch with.
In 2011, you can go home again. You can find the family and friends who are missing from your life. You can feel the strength that comes from a warm embrace, a long chat with an old friend or even a simple word of encouragement over the phone. This year, reconnect with the people who are missing from your life, but not from your heart. A direct path to them is waiting for you. Find it at PeopleFinders.com.
Happy New Year, and thank you for reading the PeopleFinders people search blog.
