Hola! My name is Bridget. My girls and I live in Florida and we love to sing - sometimes. We have a pretty busy life so we aren't on as much as we'd like to be. I apologize for not returning every listen. I'm a single mother who works full time, also. My family time with my girls is precious to me, so forgive me if I cannot return every listen. Having said that, I am grateful for every person who comes to listen to us. Please know that. xoxo
3/6/2014 - Have you ever had a true friend? I mean a friend where you don't speak for weeks, months, years - and they are there for you like it was yesterday? That was Breenie. We have been besties/family since we were 3. She's been battling cancer for years - going through clinical trials - fighting for her life .... I called her last month to check up - we text back and forth and have kept touch over the years, but I wanted to talk-talk. She answers the phone, "Okay, what's wrong?" She wasn't concerned with herself. She immediately wanted to know "What's wrong with Bridgie?" (Bridgie and Breenie - that was us.)
We had plans. She was coming to visit the girls and me in July.
Yesterday I was sad and couldn't quite put my finger on it - blamed it on hormones, but I had Breenie on my mind and I know that was a huge part of my attitude, but in the grand scheme of things....wow..... I'm down but my friend is actively dying from cancer - a disease in which she has been literally fighting for her life. I don't believe she lost the battle....she was a warrior....
I have lost a TRUE friend - really a sister - who has known me since before I can remember who knew things about me that I'd really rather not have other people know and I know things about her I'd never repeat - a true bond....
Her dad and my dad were roommates way back when. They worked at Eastern Airlines together and we traveled back and forth between Atlanta and here to visit. She went to camp with me in the summertime.
I'm overcome - I want to enjoy life but need to accept that with life comes loss. I apparently don't do loss very well. I'm hoping to get better and be able to release, but if I can't get over dad - which is 8 years this year - how am I ever going to accept this is a part of life and not always pleasant? I'm sorry for my lengthy purge.
I want to thank DanimalParrow for calling me up and helping me through the shock. I had just found out - he didn't skip a beat - he just called - a true friend.
