Losing someone you love...
While I am in the midst of updating pictures, I wanted to dedicate this post to a very close friend of mine. She lost someone special this weekend and if anyone knows how that feels it's me. I struggle everyday living without that someone. You never know what to say when someone passes, shock and confusion suddenly fills every thought. My only advice is to just "be." Talk about the incredible times that made you laugh so much you cried...fill your days with family and pictures, and friends. Cry, laugh....
When I lost my mother last year I was told something that I continually remind myself when I find that the day gets too hard to get through. It was our Rabbi who said, everyone was put on this earth to do something, a mission or simply to change someones life, everyone has a purpose. Though we don't understand why these people leave us, it is the understanding that when these special people leave us their work here is complete. I will never understand, but I found it easier to forgive, though selfish I want her to be here when I get excited about my puppies, or share memories with my children, I know that everything is going to be OK and she is watching over me sharing in all of these memories to come.
To my special friend:
Always remember her, and honor her memory by keeping her memory alive. Share stories with friends, family, and know that you have so many people that love you.
