We have all said it - lots of times. "that hit me like a ton of bricks"
Last night, it was the first time in a very long time that I actually felt that feeling. I learned a dear friend of mine passed away almost 2 weeks ago. Her name is Peggy and I loved her so much. She was beautiful inside and out. She loved me just like one of her daughters. We spent hours and hours together each week for a few years and when I moved it became frequent phone calls and visits and slowly drifted into random phone calls and no visits. I will miss her so much. I regret not being able to tell her once again how much I love her. I would have loved to say thank you for all the time we spent together - laughter and tears. She will always be in my heart.
She was a Cancer survivor 2 times and we all hoped and prayed this 3rd time would be the "charm" and be the last. Well, it was but not like I had hoped and prayed. Peggy was a fighter. She loved life and her family. I am lucky that I have her watching over me today.
