Several years ago a friendship ended. We spent all of our free time with them. We traveled together, shared in our happiness, our grief and our dreams. They were the Godparents of my child. I thought they would be in our lives forever...
When the friendship abruptly ended it was devastating to my entire family. I have since built a strong wall around me. I have received two emails from her recently. Facebook is a blessing and a curse all at the same time. I thought the doors were closed. I read the first message and chose not to reply. Todays message I replied to. I'm hoping that it will help her move on. I'm hoping I will finally move on. I guess during times of loss you are reminded of the other losses in your life.
She shared this quote on the bottom of her email. “We always thought we'd look back on our tears and laugh, but we never thought we'd look back on our laughter and cry.” (Henry David Thoreau)
Truer words were never spoken.
