Every young girl plans their wedding. Mine happens in Sheep’s Meadow, Central Park with a reception in the Egyptian exhibit at the MET. I see myself in a white non traditional bohemian dress holding a bouquet of pastel pink gerbera daisies walking barefoot in the fescue feeling the grass between my toes. There’s never been a doubt in my mind who to choose for the bridal party. To be honest the list just keeps getting longer and longer. As bridezilla as it may sound, I would be furious if anyone was not present. They all played such a dire role in making me who I am today; they all are my best friends for a reason. There really truly is nothing I wouldn’t do for every one of my best friends. I really could not possibly live without them.
As I woke up in my best friends bed this morning, I learned that some people dear to me had lost theirs. I am thankful everyday of the support and love I receive from my best friends. I would never wish upon anyone to be having to bury their best friend because I know I would be able to do it. Losing one of my best friends would be something unimaginable. To never have the opportunity to see them smile or hear them laugh, would eat away my soul. Heartbreak would never let me live a calm life. I really don’t know what I would do. The pain would honestly just eat me away. I thank my lucky stars that I am well and alive and that all my friends are safe as well because as I said before I couldn’t imagine living without them.
Today, I send positive and comforting vibes to all those who’ve recently lost a dear friend or family member. May god keep them safe and hold them in his loving arms.
