How do you say goodbye……..

How do you say goodbye to a close friend, a friend who I’ve known most of my life? How do you do life without them……. As I reflect on her life with mine I see a wise woman a woman not afraid to do the right things no matter how hard they seem. I love this woman so much and there are four of us who hang out together. We go on road trips every year and have fun and laugh and share everything with each other. We are bonded and have lots of things in common. My love of rabbits developed with this woman. We both would go to the shows and stay overnight in a hotel and we showed and bred many rabbits along the way.

We have so many awesome memories which I love but I can’t imagine life without this woman. She’s still got so many more years ahead of her. I’ve had her since my 20’s when Larry and I got to know her and her family. We’ve been there for her children who now are in their 20’s. We have been with her through thick and thin. I love that 4 of us hang out and love each others company. It doesn’t seem fair that her life will be taken short. I hate cancer so much.

I’m trying to bring joy into our last weeks /months. We don’t know how much time she has left but whatever it is we will stand with her in this. Today driving home I saw an eagle which always means that God has this and I don’t have to worry. Thank goodness I know what God does have this no matter what. I’m trying to see God in this and watching your friend suffer is horrible so going home at least she’s no longer in pain. Also because she’s going to heaven I will see her again. That will be a glorious day. Obviously God wants her before us for a reason so we must trust he’s got a plan. Not the one I like. I feel peace since last week so that is good. For now I will cherish the time I have left with her. Don’t take your life for granted because you never know how much time you have left none of us do.
