I have experienced so many emotions in the last 48 hours. And honestly, I can say that the entire past 12 months or so of my life have been some of my most emotional. A lot of things have played into this (5 jobs, growing relationships, failing at school, rough spots in friendships, the death of 3 grandparents, money, choosing to be obedient to God in moving away from the place I love, being totally childish after actually being obedient, battling with myself over becoming disciplined, dealing with the distance in my relationship & learning to maneuver it gracefully, God teaching me patience, and about a million more) but the death of my high school best friend has been incredibly impact-full.
One year ago today, August 13th, I woke up, way too early, to the man I love most in this world giving me the worst, most unimaginable news about a man that we both love dearly. There were so many emotions overwhelming my brain and body that I didn’t even have words.
