I know I have been MIA from my blog - but I wanted to take some time to gather my thoughts and get somewhat grounded again. This montage was compiled by dear friends Sally and Dee for Dottie's Celebration of Life.
Losing one of my best friends has affected me in ways that I would have never thought it would. Bottom line is, is that I miss her. We talked almost everyday and now I no longer have that ability. The ability to share our days happenings, vents and most of all making each other laugh - I mean the real belly type laughs. Sometimes at the expense of others - but most of the time at ourselves... because most of the time we chalked it up to "we just don't get it - we must be so different!" Many of you knew of our motto: F-U-N, which also became the title of her blog "cause honey, if it isn't fun, we don't do it". Whenever we met up, which was at least twice a year, the requirement was to have fun. Put your worries and troubles behind you because we were going to have F-U-N and that is exactly what we did. It was really something that we excelled at!
Dottie was a gorgeous woman - full of vibrancy, passion and a great sense of humor. One could only hope that they could live life as full as she did.
This grieving process is going to be long one - I know that there will be ups and downs and I have to accept them both. I am going to be sad, happy and angry - but that is okay. I thank all of you, who have been by my side through all of this. Without you I would have truly been a little lost soul.
I hope to back on a regular basis so be sure to sign up for the email notification!
