Coming out of my daze a little and thinking of what details I can remember after getting the worse news I've ever recieved, I, in all my grief haven't thought of the people in my life and what they've had to go through along with me. Although I knew they were there standing right beside me all the way, holding me up, getting me through all the necessary things and praying all the way it wasn't until my best friend Steph blogged yesterday about her experience that it dawned on me that they've carried pain for me and my family. This is a small town and before they came out to tell me, because they knew I was alone they called her to come with them because they knew she is my best friend. She had to leave work. Here's what she wrote yesterday about it on her blog.
Thank you Steph for being there. And I'm sorry I haven't thanked you before now.
We've been best friends for 13 or 14 years now. We've worked together that long too which is where we met. We've worked together in three different towns for the same company. Our lives are different now, I'm very much an introvert, she is married now and has a child (named after me whom I love with all my heart) and we don't have a lot of time to spend with each other as she is involved with family and her church and other things. But we're always just an email away and boy has she had some heart wrenching emails from me those first few weeks.
Thank you Steph for standing by me when I got the news. You're in my heart forever. But you knew that.
