I Miss My Friend...

While out working in the yard, I thought about him as I stacked the chairs he bought for me. I thought about him while gazing at my rock garden. I thought about him when I saw my (very special) bench and 'the sacred cow,' too...

I last saw him on Friday, October 3. I only spoke to him briefly on October 4, and that's 18 days ago. Frankly, it seems even longer.

Since then he hasn't emailed me, texted me, or phoned. (Needless to say, I haven't seen him.)

I still can't believe it. Doesn't he miss me, even a little bit? He had become one of my best friends.

I hope all is well with him, but I don't suppose there's any way for me to know. He's still in my thoughts (and prayers) and I wish him all the very best in the future.

Yes, things happen and relationships do change. It's just a fact of life. But sometimes the way they end surprises me.

Of course, I'm happy to say that I've been lucky, for the most part. It's a rare person who has gone out of my life and never returned.

On that note, Marilyn's mistressmarilyn lunch with Ellen was very nice. It's interesting to connect with someone you haven't been around for many years.

And I'm looking forward to lunch with my dear friend Phooty (and her son).

Don't get me wrong: I'm not unhappy, or dwelling on my loss. Life is still very busy, very full and very, very good!

I hope the same is true for my friend... (sigh)
