A friend of mine is going through a major change in her life at the moment. I can't even imagine deep inside her broken heart, how she is feeling. Her voice, body language, tear stained face, pretty much says it all.
She is hurting, her life feels like it is at a standstill, her soul mate has moved on.
This friend is an amazing individual, over the past year, I have seen her grow as a person. She has become stronger, gained more confidence, has started to do things that would have held her back in the past.
She amazes me, and I know that she will get through this challenging time in her life.
She has hit a fork in the road, a change of direction - she is now starting to take one day at a time, baby steps on the "yellow brick road" to happiness, a new beginning, a new home, a new life!
I saw this beautiful friend last night, and I almost shed a tear, my eyes started to well up. But I remained strong, she needs all the support that she can get. There are so many people to support this friend, and it makes me proud to stand beside her, to hug her, to be there for her - to be a friend when she needs one the most.
Stand tall my friend, take baby steps, in time your heart will heal.
