At times it takes a village

428 18

Me and Crystal went to visit the former co worker who got us back together.

Everyday I would talk about Crystal as much as I could at work with the employee. I would later talk on the phone many times about Crystal.

Somehow through the internet the co worker found Crystal, and here we are.

As much as we appreciate finding each other again, the fact is true sometimes it takes a village.

We are ever so appreciative for what the employee did, we may never have been able to become in each others life.

Again don’t ever give up, don’t ever give up.

    You are right it does sometimes take a village. But sometimes we need help from people or they are in our lives for certain reasons like bringing people together. Thanks for another update. Glad things are still going well. Much love
