A lesson learned this morning...

Today, a day that seemingly started well, I learned a lesson I should have already known. Today I learned how cliche's can be real, true, and visciously direct at times. I was a fool....ok, you already know that. What I mean, I was a fool to believe hopes over what I knew in my heart to be reality. A dear friend, a beautiful soul who loved me when my own family would not, who was my friend when I found there to be so few, a life I felt was sure to end in a few months but not right now....but not right now. Not so very soon! My friend and neighbor has passed on to be with her husband. I am somewhat in shock, lost, can't get my mind to work. I am glad I was able to speak with her on the phone yesterday, telling her how anxious I was to come visit When she was feeling better. I failed my friends, I failed. Please hear me now: Tomarrow isn't promised to any of us. Hug your friends and loved ones today. -randy.

I am very sorry to hear about your friends passing. You did not fail her. She knew how much you loved and cared for her. Please do not beat yourself up over what you could have done. Think of what you have done for her, and the love you have shared with her. Extra love and hugs for you today, JR

Thanks JR.
I have learned a lesson, though. I've been fortunate to have few close to me pass away. I've learned we need to treasure them while we have them. I think she does know, and that does give me solace. Thank you for the love and hugs. I send hugs to you as well. -randy.
