A Birth, A Death and A Breakup

Life changes, there are no guarantees.. This week I have watched the lives of a few of my friends and seen how they are changing.

The first, told me he was going to be a father for the second time. He is beaming, walking on air. So very proud and excited.

The second, lost her mother. It was a complicated relationship, not unlike many mother daughter relationships, but they loved each other and the grief of her loss is weighing on my friend. She will recover, she will be happy again but she will never have her mother. Shudder the thought. I know it happens but I hope not for a long long time.

And finally two friends whom I love dearly ended their relationship both are grieving both want to lash out and both are dear enough to let me love them both.

Life changes my friends, enjoy what you have treasure it, you don't know how long you will have it..


  1. It's always difficult when a couple breaks up and you were friends with both individuals.

    OT, you've been tagged. Stop by my blog for the details.

  2. Good informative blog.

  3. Change is difficult sometimes, because we tend to find comfort in routine ...
    My oldest son Dillon, recently broke up with his long-term (over 6 yrs) girlfriend.
    And it was heartbreaking for everyone involved.
    But they had just grown apart - plus she had to move to New Orleans for work, and he to Pennsylvania for work.
    Kind of a hard thing for a couple of 24 year old young adults.

    And I wanted to say I'm sorry about your friend losing her mother. It is never easy to lose a parent ...
    No matter how old we are, we always want our "mommy!"
    I lost mine when I was 37 ... and I'm still heartbroken!
    God Bless,
