“What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it. - C.S. Lewis
I wanted to take some time to just talk about my friends.
These past few months have been some of the most changing and challenging months since Michael was first killed. The difference though, is I now have a unwavering support system.
Michael always urged me to go out and make good girlfriends, but with my best friend being him, I never clicked with anyone, and had no issues with that. Even those that I have known since childhood, I felt I had more superficial level of a relationship with.
In the beginning, many people came in and out of my life. Besides my biological family, my husband's ghost and our dogs were the only consistent thing I could fully rely on.
Through like circumstances (widowhood), I have met the most amazing people. People that I could share my weight of life with to lessen the load, people who listened...and actually cared and remembered. People, that even when I would expect them to, never have left my side.
Just like Michael, I don't think I'll ever feel totally worthy of having such souls in my life, but I shall not argue them being here :)
Thank you. Thank you.
You have added life, love, laughter, growth adventure, a shoulder to cry on, and camaraderie into my life once more.
I could ask for no better gift in my life.
