On Thursday morning, I lost a friend.
Unfortunately, she wasn’t the only friend I have lost over the years, but she once told me that I was the brother she never had; she was an only child.
I was close to her once, but as she got sicker, I saw and talked to her less than I should have, now that I reflect to the past events. I feel terrible about how things occurred; however, I cannot turn back the clock and redo.
I am sad at her loss, but I am reminded that life continues. Life is odd that way.
I met up with close friends I haven’t seen for quite some time the following Friday evening. It was nice to see them again. I had a good time. I was reminded that I have great friends. I felt truly blessed.
So, here I am sad at the loss of a friend one moment, then happy to be with other friends the next. Life is bizarre that way.
Another thought about the loss of my friend.
