We hosted over 30 people last week to say goodbye to a very dear friend. The party went wonderfully, clearly she has impacted many people and is going to be missed.
You see, she’s one of those people who care deeply and love without hesitation. She’s one of those people who you can call when you’ve had a bad day or text at 3am when your wide awake worrying about something. She’s one of those people that leads by example and always holds true to her word.
Shes the type of person who when we completely screwed up our work schedules, she took time off work to take care of Baby MPB.
She’s one of those people that I’m thankful to have had in my life. In fact? She’s the type of friend that everyone needs in their life.
She’s the type of person who saying goodbye to feels like the air is being sucked out of the room.
Saying goodbye makes my heart hurts as I contemplate our futures which will not include weekly visits. She’s an honourary aunt to Baby MPB and now he will not get to see her all the time. I only feel sadness that he will not have as close of a relationship with her as he grows up.
Yet, rationally I know life will go on. So all I can do is hope we both work to maintain our friendship. And hope our futures will be as intertwined as our pasts have been.
And so I refuse to say goodbye. So instead I’m going to say, see you soon! (In fact, see you in 12 days when we attempt a multi-province drive with Baby MPB to visit her new home).
