Friends, I need to cry on your shoulders tonight! I just got the news that a friend of mine died this afternoon. We weren't close, but he was one of the few friends I had who didn't treat me differently after I got sick. Oh, I just feel like I can't even breathe!
I'm sitting here thinking I shouldn't be this upset, but I cannot stop crying! Then I remember chatting with him last week. about
his children. And I remember what it was like. Losing a parent when I was young. I don't know if I'm crying for them or for me. I think part of me really wishes I could take his place. So I could be done with this pain and so his kids could have him tuck them in to bed again tonight. Sometimes it's just too much.
