Today I said Good Bye

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

While I typically share experiences and thoughts about my weight loss journey.
Today I go little off topic. Today I said good bye to a very good friend. Her name
was Patty and she is my friend of many years. She had severe heart problems.
After a bout with the flu around Thanksgiving, it was just to much and her heart
gave out the day after Christmas. My heart is just broken. The service was beautiful
and fitting for a sweet sweet soul. She was filled with laughter, and had an wicked
sense of humor. She loved to cook and bake. She loved animals. She was the most
nonjudgmental person I ever knew. She loved fully and completely. When you were with
her you felt loved, and like you belonged. Her son grown and in his twenties now,
wrote the most beautiful tribute.

We have spent many an hour on the phone talking as friends do, talking about what was driving us crazy at the moment, then going off to a completely another topic. We traded craft ideas, and recipes. Just navigating life. In my head I can hear her laugh, I can hear her saying "Hi There".

I was so blessed to have a friend like that in my life, I'm the better for it.
So today I say good bye
