One of my best friends in the whole world is moving. Tomorrow. Half way across the country from me. We've known each other for nearly 13 years and worked together almost every day for the last twelve. We've fought like teenage siblings and nearly lost our friendship to my being her "boss". Our children have grown up together and our lives have entwined in so many ways over the years. She's listened, understood and prodded me to not be so cautious. I've listened, understood and cautioned her not to be so outspoken. As much as we sometimes drive each other crazy, I can't imagine my life without her.
Another life change, another loss. It never gets easier but we have to keep growing.
I'll miss her a lot.
