I lost a wonderful friend today.
Selfishly I am sad for me, as I will not have the pleasure of her physical company anymore. Happy for her in that she is not enduring pain anymore.
The temptation is there to post my sadness on social media, but I am not looking for sympathy. I want to tell the world how thankful I was to have her in my life. She was one of my fabulous cheerleaders. I shared much of my journey with her and she was always thrilled for me. When she could, she would tell me she was proud of me and couldn’t wait to see how far I could go.
I have a precious photo of the last time we saw each other. I think deep down she knew.
You are an angel now my dear friend. It was my privilege to have you in my life.
