Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Having moved more times than I can readily count during my adulthood, there are a number of people who fall into this category for me. Distance and time can put an end to relationships which seemed very close at the time.
I will say my cousin Pam. We reconnected during my first adult trip to Ireland between my first and second years of law school, and I spent a wonderful week visiting her and her family during my last law school spring break. Unfortunately, it has now been over two years since I have talked to her. . . . in fact, MM and I were not yet married the last time we spoke.
I don't have many connections with my father's family, nearly all of whom live in Ireland, and I have felt a particular closeness with Pam. So even though she is in Ireland and I am in the U.S., I think of her often and wish we were in closer touch.
