As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I have only posted about friendships on my new blog. Why did I do that, you may ask. Well, I am truly blessed to have some amazing friends, and I wanted to share that with all of you.
You see, my mother passed away on March 29, and my father died on April 1. Although their deaths were 31 years apart, one thing both situations had in common is the support of my friends.
I was a freshman in college when my father died unexpectedly in a car accident. Friends played an important part in helping me get through that difficult time. As you read in my post, How Foxie Roxie and PB Became Friends, Roxie traveled all the way from St. Louis to my hometown by bus! My hometown friends were there for me while I was home, and a few of my other college friends came for the funeral.
When my mom passed away, my friends were there to support me once again! Even though 31 years had passed, many of the same friends were there, as well as some new ones! My friends were there for me when I needed a shoulder to lean on, a hug, or just needed to talk during the time she was in the hospital and nursing home, and after she passed away.
To my readers, please remember, when you have a friend going through some tough times, sometimes it’s the small things they’ll remember that you did for them. You never know how much a phone call, text, hug, or a smile can do for a friend in need. Sometimes it’s as easy as just sitting by them saying nothing, just being there is all they need from you.
Thank you to all my friends that have been there for me through the years! I am so blessed and thankful I have you in my life!
Until next time,
