I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...yet.  Just a little preoccupied with life.

Title - Sad - Yes, I'm a little sad these days.  I told you all about my friend that was diagnosed with cancer.  Well things have gone from bad to horrible.  She is now at home with the help of hospice.  Yesterday I went to visit and she told me goodbye.  No, not goodbye like you see later, but goodbye with an I Love You.  I cried all the way back to work.  Not just a little boo hooing, but actually bawled. 

I know that death is a part of life and death is a part of being an adult.  Doesn't mean I have to like it or embrace it.  I know that my friend will be in better Hands soon and free from the horrible pain she is in now, but it still doesn't make it any easier to deal with. 

Pictures of quilty things to follow this weekend or during the week.

Oh, no! I know there is nothing I can say, but I am so sorry that you and your friend are going through this. I can't even imagine.

I wish I had magic dust to help your friend out, or at a minimum, help you. But I don't. I don't even have words to make things better. This isn't a fun time and I understand your pain.

I am glad that you had a chance to say goodbye to your friend. I'm sure your visit meant a lot to her too!

Hugs, many hugs.

I am so sorry to read this... and so sorry for the absence she will create in your life. I'll be thinking of you both and hoping you find a comfortable spot in your heart soon.
