Six months ago my heart broke into a million pieces.... and then a day short of a month later a sledgehammer was taken to those pieces. 2018 has been one of the hardest years of my life. And without these two beautiful people in it I honestly don’t know how I make it through sometimes.
1. Six months ago today I lost my little. She was basically like my child, but my own age so a little bit different, so she was also my best friend. In a lot of ways we were the same damn person, and in a lot of ways we weren’t. Her being gone still brings a wrench to my heart that I’m not sure will ever go away, just lessen. Shelby Raye Sloan Whitten, I know God has you now and I know it’s selfish, but... every day, every hour, every time I need to tell someone something, I wish you were still here with me.
2. Five months ago yesterday the woman I called my second mom passed away. She was my literal teacher from the time I was 3 years old until I was almost 12. But she was also family. She quickly became my moms best friend and her daughter is the woman I call my sister, and have for a very long time. She was my family, she was there helping me through the tragedy a month before. That phone call on March 15th was so unexpected and if I’m being honest I still haven’t dealt with it.
I miss these two beautiful women more than words can ever convey. A part of me will never be whole without them, but I will heal one day. Love you both to pieces, and I wish y’all were still here. 😔💕
