Remember the BRA story? Go see SB's Saturday giggle - dedicated to me and Cynthia. I had such a good laugh!!! What a clever gal she is that ms. soulbrush!!!
Which was a great way to start this day, cause it's gotten a bit serious-er in some ways. I met a friend this morning at 7:00 am (on a Saturday ) and we drove an hour north to meet up with another friend for breakfast. The friend up north has had some tragedy in her life - she was living with a man she dearly loved but who was bipolar. She couldn't handle it anymore...moved out and a few months later he killed himself - on Good Friday - about 1.5 years ago. We've cried together and had his memorial and she is moving on with her life, thank god. We've spent alot of time with her and with her sisters - all of whom are married to seemingly wonderful men.
We just found out this week that one of the sisters is getting divorced - because yes...he was fooling around. After 35 years! And I guess this isn't the first time, so she's had it! OK, this is normal in this day and age and I've heard it a million times, but oh - it was so hard to see her pain! She looks wonderful but you can just see that a part of her has been ripped away - her best friend has betrayed her. It brings tears to my eyes just to hear the story. We all talked about how she would be OK, life moves on etc etc, but there is something that changes within one when this type of trust is broken - no way to even put it into words.
Life....never know what's going to happen next do we??? Treasure the moment? or prepare for the worst?
