But I've received devastating news last night when I touched down.
One of my good friend's mother passed away.
It came as a sudden shock for me, as I had no clue (since I was out of town) that she had been hospitalized.
But even more so for the family, as she was an active, strong, vibrant woman.
I've never met her personally, but I heard about how joyful and pleasant she was.
And of course, her cooking's awesome. He took lots of food snaps of the suppers she cooked for him.
I had the honor of tasting it once, she made us (at the company), an awesome chinese styled pork knuckles in black vinegar.
I just came back from the wake and it breaks my heart, I was so close to tears.
I don't know how to contemplate a loss of a kin that close.
I know all I can say are comforting words, "I'm sorry for your loss, if you need me, call. I'm here for you."
But I just don't know if that is enough, it just doesn't seem enough.
The pain is going to be there, for a long time, if not forever.
I said to my friend to stay strong, and to take care.
But I know its got to hurt, it has to...
This is the worse kind of goodbye.
One that you didn't get to say, enough times.
But then again, you can never spend "enough" time with a person you love.
All the time you have is never going to be enough.
Life is... such isn't it?
I'll take a rain-check on the report today, but don't worry it's all too fresh in my head.
I need to crash right now, i'm officially exhausted.
Love you all. <3
