life is such a wonderful, but strange thing... i just wish everyone could live forever.
today was very hard for me. to see, someone i knew who had passed away far too young, ready to go to rest.
i guess the strongest thing i felt was that life is so so fragile. it's something i don't understand, something i will probably never understand.
danielle spoke beautifully today. she talked about good times with amanda, growing up with her, being young, free, and timeless. i was never that upset until i put it into my own terms--losing someone you were and are so very close to. it's not right. i can't imagine if i were in the same situation, not at all.
but, i think if something came out of this at all it is that you have to treasure people in your life. sure, people disagree, or they're on a different page than you are. so what? all of that is small stuff. it's scary how much we all take each other for granted. i just hope this is and was a learning experience for me, and everyone else. and that we need to remember the little things, sometimes the littlest things and realize how very lucky we are to have our health, happiness, youth, and freedom...
RIP Amanda, we will all miss you very much. thanks for being in our lives.
