Missing Laurel

Some days it is still so hard for me to realize that she is gone.

She was more than just my friend.  She was my best friend, my sister, my soul-mate.

I talked to her every day about every thing.  Multiple times a day as well.

We had a never ending text conversation that we would just picked up where we left off through the day when we had a chance to answer.

We could talk about anything and everything.  We were happy for each others accomplishments and sad for our losses.

We talked each other through raising our boys and living with our husbands and  dealing with family issues.

There is still hardly a day goes by that I don't miss her.  Some days the pain of losing her is still so real and so raw.  I am quite often still brought to tears when I realize that I can't just call or text her.

Not long ago, Hubby and I saw Fast & Furious 7.  Since we have seen every one of these movies together, we too felt the loss of Paul Walker.  The end song "See You Again" made me ball like a baby.

I often listen to these words and reflect on what I have lost as well.

But in the end, when I have my wits about me and the strength to think about things clearly, I know that she is pain free.  I know that she is in peace with our Father in heaven and I will see her again soon.  What may seem like many years for me, will be just a blink of an eye for her.

I know that I will never be able to replace her, but I hope that some day I can once again have a friendship so deep and so strong with someone.


PS - For those that are new to this blog, my best friend passed away from breast cancer on Feb. 11, 2014.
