Today was a sad day…I had to say goodbye to a friend that means a great deal to me. My dear Friend Cheryl is moving to Florida next week and today we tried to pretend that all will be well with her leaving.
We rarely see each other, she lives about an hours drive away, but I always knew she was nearby. I knew if I needed her she would be there as quickly as humanly possible.
When my Mom passed away she brought enough food to feed an army…and stayed with me the whole evening. She told me when to eat, she told me when to sit and rest…she took care of me.
We met in the early 70′s, and lived in the same apartment building for years. She was a single Mom, we had completely different lifestyles, but we were close and always there for each other. Twenty five years ago, give or take, she was in a serious car wreck. She almost died. Well, she really did die, but she came back. She was in the hospital for months, I was pregnant, but I can remember sitting and watching her and willing her to get well. She did.
She is moving on, going to Florida to be with her son, grandson and the rest of her family. I will miss her…so much. And, I think I will need to get over my fear of flying. See ya later my little Greek girlfriend! My Little Cheryl!
