So, it has been quite the week. Nothing has gone according to plan or expectations. One week ago today, my best friend’s mom died after an extended illness. It was one of the most surreal experiences, knowing for so long the day was coming but finally experiencing it. Facing the finality of life and being reminded of it’s briefness. Remembering all of the fun times we had together, trips taken and the many lessons learned through shared life-experiences. It has been a blessing to be included in their family for so many years and was a blessing to be able to share such a precious time at the grave-side service with them.
Thank you, Mrs. Brown, for the part you played in making me the man I am and I look forward to seeing again . . .
