On My Mind Monday my amazing friends…

Hi on my mind this Monday are my amazing friends.  When you go thru a really bad time in your life you see who your friends are.  There are those friends who will go to your parities and those are some good friends.  But when your are down and your friends show up then you see what friendship means.  To you and to them.  In the time since I lost my love, I have been blessed to see I have some amazing friends.  I don’t know how I got so lucky in this life.  I can’t thank them enough for there amazing actions of friendship to me.  I want to share a few with you…

Amazing friends

One of my amazing friends who lives out of state, thanks to having gotten a call from his cousin who saw it on FB was on my door step the next day.  Even thought I admittedly told him the previous day when he got me on the phone you don’t need to come.  He visited with me for two days before the wake and I will never be able to repay that kindness.

One of my amazing friends who lives not to far away but for whatever reasons we never made the time to get together.  Also just showed up at my door.  Which of course made me a little paranoid I was all like how did you know where I live? lol {I have to laugh/smile when I can} She had reached out to my sister for the address.  Her visit really warmed my heart.  We sat and just talked for several hours.  

One of my amazing friends who lives a little over 2 hours away.  Cried with me when she couldn’t get here for the wake due to snow storm.  But a week later when I called having a particularly bad day was at my house to just sit with me within an hour and half. Something I will never be able to repay her.  On my moving day her and her husband took the trip down here and showed up.  He was an amazing help after having only met me a couple of times.  I will never be able to thank him enough.  I’m so happy my girlfriend has such an amazing husband.  God has blessed her.  I think she pays it forward everyday as they are amazing foster parents to children in need.

One of my amazing friends reached out to me shortly after and asked me to meet him in church.  When something like this suddenly happens to you it can rock your faith.  I will admit that mine was.  I met him at mass and he held my hand as I cried my way threw mass.  Afterwords we sat for a couple of hours and just talked.  His unwavering faith after having lost both his parents is of great comfort to me.

Another of my amazing friends when I mentioned I would need an apartment to move into.  She spoke to her landlord and found me the apartment I’m now in.  She lives on the 3rd floor of this building and checks on me routinely to make sure I’m OK.  And or keep me company or have dinner together.  A kindness I can’t thank her enough for.

Another of my amazing friends who I have mentioned on the blog here before Chino.  Showed up this weekend, after helping heck managing my move to set up my things on my walls.  He is a super handy guy and I’m so lucky to have him as a friend.  This week on the blog you will get to see my apartment living room coming together and it’s due to my amazing friends.
