My mind today is full of memories of times spent with a dear friend that is now gone from my life. Of course, I feel her presence often and I know she is still with me in spirit but today I truly do miss her. Today was her birthday and Chris would have been celebrating her 56th. Something she always did on her birthday that was unique to her was to bring her mother a beautiful bouquet of flowers. She had a very close relationship with her mom and she celebrated 'her birth' that way. Now both her and her mom have passed on. I'm sure today they are walking through a garden together and Chris is handing her a special flower to celebrate and say "thank you".
I lost Chris to ovarian cancer in 2010.
Yes, I do miss my friend today. "Happy Birthday, Chris".
