My Heart Hurt

I made a trip back home to support a dear friend of mine. Sadly, her dad passed away Wednesday September 21, 2011. This was the first funeral I was going to attend since my own Mom's....I was....nervous. I didn't know if I would be able to compose myself and be there for her in such a time of need, but I soon realized that although I inevitably thought of my Mom and how much I missed her, my friend was my main concern. My heart literally ached for my friend. It made me so incredibly sad and heartbroken to have to see her go through such a hurt and loss that I knew all to well. I wanted to be able to take her pain away so she would not have to feel the emptiness and loss of losing a parent. You know the saying "my heart hurt", my Mom's death was the first time that I truly "KNEW" what that meant. It literally meant MY HEART HURT. I wished more than anything that my friend did not have to feel that hurt.



  1. I can't imagine how hard that would be but I'm so glad you were able to be there for your friend. Just saw on FB you are close to closing on your house-That is so exciting for you guys!

  2. Wow, I'm blown away. I never knew until I was looking at your blog today. All I can say is thank you and I love you. I know our time was limited when you were back, but no words were needed, I was just blessed to have you there. Just knowing that you knew the emptiness that I felt. I think of you often, I miss you dearly and you are one of my bestest friends forever. Just tonight I thought about our movie nights, we use to have in my basement apartment. I honestly don't think we showered for days, ate nothing but junk and drank whatever it was with jolly ranchers. Gotta love it. I miss ya, I miss ya, I miss ya. I can't wait for us to get together and catch up. It's needed!!!!!!!!!!
    Lots of Love, KT
