This morning a dear close friend of mine died...actually right in front of me. I saw my friend take it's last breath and then so suddenly the light was snuffed out. My eye's filled up and that feeling of knowing that someone you love has moved onto a better place, yet you know you will miss them so much, washed over me like a wave. I stood there in disbelief...how...when I needed you the most you decided to leave. I gave into the tears and stood there for a moment as my youngest child came up and gave me a hug. As her small sweet arms clung around me I knew she felt my pain. She knew that I was heart broken and that no words would take away this sadness. I laid my head down onto the counter top and buried my face and allowed the tears to come. My husband walked into the room and comforted me with these words that he dug deep into his heart...just for...me. "For God's sake Laura it's just a microwave...I'll buy you a new one!"
It wasn't JUST A MICROWAVE...it was my FRIEND!! :)
