It's been a little over 2 weeks since my last post.. and I've been MIA so to speak, but a lot has gone on. Just twenty short minutes after I posted "Fragility of life." My friend's mom, Theresa, went to be with the Lord. It was a shock at how fast it all happened, thankfully she went peacefully surrounded by her family.
Amanda is one of my dearest best friends. We have known each other since we were just 3 years old and grew up hip to hip. So many memories have been shared with her. Amanda and her "little" sister are much apart of my family too. She means the world to me and I knew I was needed there by her side. She lives in Jacksonville, Fl and so I booked the first available flight I could get and Giovanni and I left the following Wednesday. We stayed a week and just got home late Tuesday night. (I will do a recap of traveling with an infant later). It's been a very emotional couple of weeks. It's always sad to see someone so young (59) to pass on, and it's especially hard when they were very dear to your heart.
The last week was filled with so many wonderful memories and emotions. There was lots of tears, laughter, shopping, and good old fashion friend time at the beach. Sometimes when life gets serious, you just need that one person in your life to be real with. I'm glad I could be there, if only to just listen.
