Tuesday, Oct 11th, was the anniversary of the death of a good friend who taught me much. I really miss Linda. She was a very enlightened, supportive and loving person. She taught me more than I’d ever imagine in the short period of time that I knew her. Whenever I see a cabbage moth, I think of her and imagine her fluttering by to say hello. I keep a photo of her in my office.
Today, Thursday, Oct 13th is the birthday of my childhood best friend, Debbie. She had a rough road during the time I knew her and much to deal with before we fell out of touch, but she did teach me about drama and what NOT to do. She also taught me about not communicating and making judgements. I know it doesn’t sound very positive, but everything is a teaching moment if you look at it the right way.
Last night, I dreamed I had a small, little baby that I named Rosie, but she wouldn’t feed and eventually died. I’m trying to rid my minds eye of such an image that it created for me (gee thanks, mind) but it just keeps popping up unexpectedly and upsets me. I’m trying to figure out if there was something I need to learn from that dream, other than what I did, which was that I was amazed how attached and how much love you can pour out to something in such a short period of time. Huh.. kinda like Linda.
I think I’ll light a candle and think of these three ladies and send my love to all of them and thank them for the things they’ve taught me in my life.
