A journey

What's that saying Life is a Journey. Well my life has been one that I wouldn't trade the past as it's what made me who I am today.

I think back over the years and there are many people that influenced me in one way or another. There aren't many however that have known me for my entire life like two people. My BFF Diana and her mom Mrs. P.  Now Diana has been my BFF since day one.

We grew up on the same street, 2 houses between us and though we were in different school systems we spent most of our time together.  We skated together, we entered Brownies and Girl Guides together, we would bike to get a slurpee, and sometimes we even liked the same boy at the same time. Her parents would take me camping with them, my family (well mostly my brothers would tease her like a little sister). And that is what she is to me a sister. Her mom Mrs. P is my 2nd mom and always made me feel part of her family. Since the late 1980's Mrs. P has has fought one illness or another and there were times when doctors told the family to prepare themselves for the worst but she always fought back. According to the doctors she shouldn't have lived the life she did. But she fought each illness with zest and gumption until this past Wednesday where I truly believe that she decided enough was enough and waited for Diana to be with her and then went to meet Mr. P. I think he decided he needed dinner made or a shirt ironed! ;) But now after a long wait they are again together.

Mrs. P you will always be a huge part of my life and I treasure every moment. You taught me to give it your all and not give up. And best of all you gave me a best friend that means the world to me.

You will be deeply missed but will always have a place in our hearts.
