This blog post brought tears to my eyes as it was so raw, so true and so important for us all ~ hold your loved ones close everyday. Do the right thing and take care of yourself and others. And please, do not drink and drive. Thank Lori Lara for sharing your story with us. Much love to you and C. I have a best friend since we were 9 and your post hit home for me. Big hugs to you xo
This story is so sad and yet so very powerful! I hope hits home for all those who needed a reminder.
Bobbi, me too. I found myself crying and just felt that it was such an important message and reminder. I knew you’d understand. xoxo
Certainly a valued reminder… both of the impacts of bad personal decisions on other people AND the randomness of grief, and learning to embrace the randomness of it..
Absolutely ML…I agree with you! ♥
Am bawling and contacting all of my 6 BFFs (of which you are one!) and telling them I love them. Thank you for sharing this!
I love you too…this was a tear-jerker wasn’t it? I had to reblog because it just hit me straight to my heart. xoxo
So powerful. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for commenting…it was quite powerful! ♥
Beautiful story and reminder of the preciousness of life and for those we love. Happy New Year Yvonne. 🙂 🙂 Karen x
Karen, I know you understand this ~ your Healing Grief blog is so powerful because of it. Big hugs and much appreciation to you for opening your heart to us all. xo
You’re such a deep and loving person. Thank you. I appreciate how deeply you connected with me in my sadness. Somehow, in the mystery of vulnerability and compassion, you lightened my load of pain by sharing in it.
I hope sharing my story of losing my dearest friend will somehow translate into a saved life. Many hugs to you.
Many hugs to you dear friend ~ your post just held me captive right from the start and I just had to reblog it. I thank you from my heart for sharing your and C’s story with us for you make a difference and her life was not for naught. A shining example of friendship, love, light, laughter and tears. ♥♥♥
Putting the computer away for the night to spend quality time with husband. A sad story and a great reminder to gift our loved ones with love and our presence as the next moment is not guaranteed. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you Yvonne for stopping by! Hope you had sweet dreams and a marvelous night! ♥
