this world is really really small.
like 2-3 years ago I connected with someone on tumblr who lived on
the other side of the country but instantly her and I felt like sisters.
last summer she came down to my city to visit her family, so I invited
her over to my place twice during her trip. she met my family and all.
our friendship continued to grow and grow. she is the only person I talk
to from the second I wake up until the second I go to sleep. first text
and last text is always her. soul sister.
today, we were just talking about our where our families were from
and stuff. and we find out that our families lived in the same city,
like same neighborhood. so she was with her mom and I was with my
parents and we are here texting each other our family names and
stuff…only to find out our parents know each other! her mom and my mom’s
family are really close. like a few houses down close. and her uncle
and my dad were great friends. I cannot contain myself.
my mom is here telling me that the year I was born (‘91) my friend’s
mom was in town and my mom invited her over and everything. these are
people who knew each other for so so long but lost contact and such. we
ended up making our parents talk on the phone. it was so beautiful yo. subhan'Allah
I am here smiling ear to ear. to give our parents the gift of
reconnecting was just so damn beautiful. i knew i liked her a lot for a
reason lol. in her words “you were always my sister, but i think it just
got more legit. shits real!”
the world is really small.
Alhamdulilah. tonight was beautiful
