This weekend we enjoyed some time with Jeff’s parents, we got the house back in order from last weekend’s birthday party and today, I had the honor of attending a beautiful memorial for one of my oldest and dearest friend’s mother, who passed away last week after a long battle with cancer. It was touching and quite surreal to be there. This friend and I have known each other since middle school and although I didn’t know her mother well, being there to celebrate her mother’s life and hug and cry with her really touched my soul. I sat next to my other dear childhood friend throughout the service, her five-week old baby cradled close in her arms, and the emotions I was feeling were so very strong. It was something else. I can’t quite put my feelings into words, at least not eloquently. Never the less, I was honored to be there and hear stories about a life well lived and loved.
