All I can say is wow! Wow to what awesome friends I have. They threw me a hats & scarf party on Thursday night and it was just what I needed. Yummy food, wine – yes a little too much for me, mini cupcakes from Caprimo (just two for me!), great pictures of the evening and most importantly an abundance of wonderful friends.
It really was a magical evening with the girls. After they sang happy birthday, I cried – for me, for my wish to be cancer free forever, for my wonderful friends, for my broken heart being healed a little every day, for it all – I cried to cleanse and make room for the new. I think there were more tears flowing than just mine so to add fuel to the fire, I decided it was a good time for me to read what I wrote:
You girls –
You girls are my rocks
My net of love
Each holds a piece of my heart
And each has helped paint my soul
Make me laugh
Make me cry
Sometimes make me scream
Are my light
When my road gets dark
Are the chorus
To my song
And without it
My song would be flat
Are more than friends
Are more than I could ever have imagined in my life
I love you girls.
This is to all the girls in my life – those there and those not able to be there.
I loved every minute of the night.
I loved the laughing, the hugging, the remembering, the sharing of stories with new and old, the enjoying the moment – the pure moment of the night.
When Amanda left, she told me, “You look happy, really happy.”
She summed it up with those simple words.
I am happy – happy to be where I am today, tomorrow and always.
