Lost

Please send me your comfort, and send prayers up to heaven. I’ve lost one of the best friends in my life. She taught me so very much, about love and forgiveness. We shared secrets and dreams, tales about lovers and loss, we marveled at Mother Nature and turned her inspiration into craft. For years, we were each other’s soft place to fall. She loved me, unconditionally and I loved her right back. And man, did we laugh! I can still hear hers ringing… And her hugs? They were the best in the world. She radiated such goodness to those that knew her; I know I ‘m not the only one weeping tonight. You were always an angel, Shari, but now you have your wings. Don’t fly too far, yet. Linger and help us all through our loss.

    Been thinking about you for days, dear friend. Every time I do it brings tears to my eyes. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Every time I type out a sentence, I reread it and it just sounds so mundane, so inadequate. I wish I had your ability to express myself. Just know that I am here, any time, day or night, just call. Love you.

      Thank you for your kind words, love and hugs. Please know they do help me!

      I remember my dear friend and I once reminded each other, “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.” And then we laughed, as we wondered, “Just who does he think we are?!” We carried on and now, with the help of her spirit, I must do the same.
