Do you have that friend who always seemed perfect whom you thought if you could just be a wee bit cooler you would become her? That’s how I felt about my best friend from yesteryears. She seemed to have it all.
I was planning another post when I received the news that one of my dearest friends is losing her husband. This has been a complete surprise and I have no words. Without going into her private business, he had a massive heart attack and now her heart is breaking. Even when someone seems to have it all, it can be taken in mere moments.
I cannot recall exactly when we met…was it fourth grade? fifth grade? All through middle school she was the one I shared lockers with. In high school, she remained my very best friend. She, who had way more allowance and an only child, introduced me to all the music that I still love today. We were friends way before we were goth; we slowly went goth together even when our parents told us that we couldn’t.
My friend is in a place of mourning. Her heart hurts. My heart hurts for her. Tonight, go hug your loved ones a little tighter.
