This week has been an absolute struggle for me. It seems like stress hit me in all directions this week. However, my main struggle has been living so far away from some of my friends. Three out of my six bridesmaids now live out of state. Two of those dear friends had major life “experiences” this week. One had a very happy experience and the other one had a not so happy experience. One got engaged and the other has been preparing to say goodbye to a precious loved one. It has literally broken my heart to not physically be there for both of them. They have both been there for me during the good and the bad and it has hurt deeply not to be there for them. I know this is just part of life but it has honestly surprised me how consuming my heartbreak has been. I’ve always known I have some of the best friends in the world but this week has proven once again how much they mean to me. I don’t know if it comes from being an only child and knowing that these girls are the closest I will ever have to sisters. And they too know that as well because they are also only children. (Side note: not really sure what that says about us. Maybe we don’t play well with others still? Ha ha!) But I honestly don’t know if sisters love each other as much as I love my sweet friends. I hope that this heartache passes soon and that I will be able to physically be there for them in the future.
Please pray for my friend who is preparing to say goodbye to a family member.
