One year ago today, I lost a friend.
I don't mean that she's out there in the woods somewhere, I mean that she is now departed. I posted about it here, but now, a year later, it still hurts. I think about her a lot. I pamper the hell out of the Peace Lily she gave me. It hasn't bloomed in a very long time.
We weren't close. Not really. I feel like I don't have the right to still hurt knowing that she is gone. Maybe it's because I never took a minute to tell her she was special to me.
I don't tend to be good at that.
In honor of her, We should all call that person we've been thinking of. And tell them they mean something. That you love them if that is the case.
You never know how telling someone that they made a difference in your life might change theirs. And at the very least, you won't wish you had.
Do it. Do it now.
