I started writing a post that I thought was pretty funny. All the elements of humor were there but somehow, I just didn’t feel right. I didn’t feel like being funny.
One of my closest, dearest and best friends passed away suddenly. She was just 65 years old. And she was a young and vibrant and beautiful and caring woman.
Losing a friend feels like this.
There’s a lot going on in my head as I write this. We’re not immortal. We’re not going to be on this earth forever, as much as some of us would love to be–we aren’t.
I’m also a bit angry because why is it that a truly good and kind person dies suddenly and we have a filthy example of humanity leading our country. Sorry folks–this has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with good people vs. evil ones.
Life just isn’t fair at times..
Anyway, I don’t want to be angry. I don’t want to be sad. And I’m really sad today. I’ll be packing my bag because tomorrow I’ll be heading out of town for the funeral.
If you have a friend or two that you haven’t been in touch with for a while, might I suggest to pick up the phone and give them a call. Friendship is a gift that we take for graI wonted sometimes. We always figure we’ll see that person again and don’t give it a second thought.
Margaret and I had kept making plans over the past year and they never came to fruition. I will be seeing her but not under the circumstances that I should be seeing her.
So I’ll be hanging in there and will be posting next week. I just want to let you know that each and every one of you who read my blog is a friend–and you are special to me. Take care of yourself. Be kind. Be good.
And take your work and your life seriously–but don’t take yourselves too seriously!
See you next week!
