It was the best of times it was the worst of times.

I went to my graduation for my masters degree today. While I was there I received a phone call from a friend that I do not let go to the voice mail, she is too important in my life. She was calling to tell me that another mutual friend had passed away that morning. This woman was a powerful, beautiful, spiritual woman who had touched my life in a meaningful way.

I feel shamed that I was resentful of going to my graduation, only agreeing to appease my family. She would have slapped me silly had she known my feelings and been completely in the right.  I feel shamed I wasn’t present for her more. I had little to give her but she was amazing and in wish I would have learned a little of what she had to pass on which was a lot.

I can only hope I become a little as strong as she before it’s my turn to take the long journey.

As it is the comfort is that one of her godchildren is caring for her earthly remains having recently become a mortician.

Such a loss.
