4 years

I am a day behind everything this week. I have very good excuses. One of which is the fact that my oldest started school today.

I didn't cry once. Is everyone really proud of me?

I have pictures that I will post tomorrow. But for today I just needed to sit down and write what I fully intended on writing yesterday.

4 years ago yesterday I got news of the death of my dear friend, Kirsten. This news was quite possibly the hardest news I have ever had to deal with. It changed me forever.

She is always on my mind and I miss her every day. Her death took me years to get over. My hubby just said that he was proud of me for not crying yesterday. I know that I will see her again, and that is what holds me together this time of year. She was a wonderful person and today I wanted to take a minute and remember her.

Kirsten, you were a great friend and an example to everyone! I love you and will see you again someday!

To all you.....find someone this week that you have been thinking about and tell them how much they mean to you. Pass the love along. It goes a LONG way! You never know, you may never get the chance again!

Glad to hear you're holding it together. You've got to be somewhat excited about little Dude starting school...or maybe I'm just saying that because I haven't been there yet ;-)
