I wrote this after watching a dear friend, for so many years, just being awesome, kind, compassionate, selfless and true, no matter the consequences of loving and caring too much. She is the mender of the broken, the victor of the vanquished and the bright light in more people's lives than she ever realizes.
I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to get it into the blog section of the website but here it is finally.
Have a read because maybe you could stand to take in these words of thanks and gratitude.
I know people who have seen and known more pain than should be a reality in this life, and still they thrive.
To those of you who know this struggle and thrive despite all your odds, you are the makers of this world. You turn things on their heads and never lie down no matter how close your lips come to kissing the dirt.
No one knows life and loss and how precious the bits in between are the way you do. You've who've know absolute love, had those loves ripped away, despaired and rejoiced, elated and begun again, in more ways and with more resolve than I've ever known possible.
You set examples and bars so high but never impossible for others to aspire and reach.
I call you 'friends', but I feel more as if I'm a witness to the most beautiful creatures to walk this earth.
Life doesn't always make sense but without you in this world, the meaning would be lost.
Thankyou. From the bottom of my heart and with every bit of mortality and immortality within me, thank you.
