Smile Because it Happened
A week ago, I lost my best friend.
It still doesn't feel real.
There are moments when I am angry, moments when I am sad, moments when I am confused. But mostly, there are moments where I smile.
I want to be mad and sad all the time and feel like I should be, but I just can't. I am so fortunate to have had someone like Z in my life. She taught me the true meaning of friendship and I can never thank her enough for doing that.
So when I think things are getting dark and am missing her more than I can handle, I think of all the wonderful times together and all the things she brought into my life. And then I smile...
I smile because I was lucky enough to have this girl in my life for 22 years.
And I smile because I know wherever she is now she having that same affect on someone else.
Z, I will miss you more than you know. Thanks for being the best friend a girl could ever have. While I can never replace you, I will always strive to have friends as true as you were to me and to be that friend in return.
Until we meet again, my friend...
I love you now and always. You are always in my heart.
