Its okay not to cry, a story for a friend's friend.
Posted Jul-28-08 18:47:22 PDT
You asked me if its okay is you did not cry. After the years you walked with your friend in her time of great need. You never gave up and stayed strong. That is a wonderful indication of how you are such a solid and loving person--thus true friend. You stayed for the eleven years she was dying and KNEW she was dying yet you stayed.
Yes, the hummingbird your's friends symbol of peace and beauty was a message to let you know she is at peace. And you may wonder how I know this:
ITS BECAUSE OF JOJO
For months, I sat at the flea market with JoJo. NO FOOKING MATTER where in the building I was Bees where attracted to me. No shyte! One day after church JoJo and I were setting up the flea market and true to form; bees came in and started buzzing around me.
So, JoJo to keep me there with her. Picked up a Vanilla Scented pump spray of OFF bug spray. And said, "HERE YOU WILL BE SAFE" and sprayed my legs. (I FOOKING BELIEVED HER---big smiles here.) The bees on the other hand swarmed me and my bare skin.
MIND YOU I AM ALLERGIC TO BEE STINGS
Well, I can still hear her laughing as I got my car to go take a shower. Bees tried to get in my car.
Well JoJo died last year in December weird time for bees. During her out door service at the gravesite it was windy; the entire time during the eulogy a bee hung out with me. For the next two weeks there was a bee in my life nearly everyday. I am no longer afraid of bee stings because I just think of JoJo coming by for a visit.
I CAN STILL HEAR HER LAUGHING
And not crying is okay!
JoJo I love you!

To lose a close friend is a REAL loss. Happened to me and it hurts a lot and a long time. Sorry for your loss.
