… and it put the biggest smile on my face. This is my beautiful bestie, two years to the day after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Still handling things with the same sense of humour as the day she delivered the news to us.
It’s hard to believe that it has been two years already. “It seems like only yesterday” sounds so cliché but it is the absolute truth. Details vividly etched; not just those from the day she told me but through this entire journey. I start to wonder if they will ever fade. While there are some moments I would like to forget, like this ever happening in the first place, there are many beautiful memories I will carry forever.
Memories of friends uniting. A community coming together. Standing as one supporting our girl. It’s not just my life she has impacted but everyone’s she has touched. Memories of the special one-on-one times that only she and I shared. Strengthening our friendship. Growing together.
I spent today reflecting; revisiting our journey over the last two years. I came across the letter I wrote my bestie on this day last year (read full letter here). Today these words from that letter rang more true than ever.
Bestie, you have taught me to never give up; to fight for what I believe in; that life is too short to sweat the small things; to not wait for the storm to pass but to dance in the rain. For all of these gifts, I thank you.
I luvs ya with all my heart. Muwah!
