Here is something my friend, who passed away last week, wrote on her blog about me . . .
Melissa’s Mysteries! This wonderful girl is a great friend. Her entries are thought provoking and full of information, thoughts and feelings. I appreciate her honesty and her ability to let her real self shine through her blog. She tells us how it is, and she is great doing it. She is an award winning writer who has a great future ahead of her, and is someone who is actually LIVING and striving for her dreams.
She was giving me an award of some sort and I've only read it for the first time today. I'd gotten behind on reading her posts and it kills me that I let it happen. Melissa's Mysteries is the name of my old blog. Lisa's word's mean the world to me, especially now that she is gone. Now they're like scripture. Sacred, honest and inspiring. I will miss her more than words can express. She was my mother, sister, and friend. SHE was the one who taught me to blog in the first place, about five or six years ago. She took me through the steps to set it up and then let me run with it.
She touched so many people, affected so many lives. How my heart aches now that she is gone. She died too young and I will never be the same. The one thing that keeps me going is that I want to make her words come true. I promise to actually live and strive to make my dreams come true . . . for the both of us.
