And I'm bummed.
It feels like everything is about to change...my friend's move...the seasons change...school starts next week...and other things. I am bracing myself against all the change and trying to remember to take it one day at a time. I don't consider myself a person who has difficulty with change, but this time feels a little different.
She'll probably hate this picture..her eyes are closed, but there it is. My friend. in the park. on a sunny day. I'm an introvert. I don't make friends easily. I don't have what I would call a lot of friends, particularly in my adopted suburban community. She is special. She was my neighbor. She showed me how she does the stay at home mom thing. She showed me how she navigated the social scene at the school. She introduced me to Letterboxing. We share a love of photography, cooking, reading, knitting...she helped me feel like I'm enough just being me. She has about the most generous heart of anyone I know and today I have to say goodbye to her. and it hurts more than I thought it would.
