I have to admit, it's been a hard few weeks. I added another year to the tally sheet that is my life at the end of October, but I can't help but terribly miss the friend that has been subtracted this year. Today is her birthday. She would have been 28.

In spite of a heavy heart I am also thankful. I am thankful that I live in a place that I love, near friends and family, and that I have the things I need in life. I am thankful to all my dear friends who have been supportive this year--I can't speak enough for the love that my friends show me and each other. It's so great to be a part of an ever-extending family, to know that there is always someone there. I feel blessed to have such amazing people in my life.

I am thankful for Jill and the great times we had together, the things I learned from her carefree style, her love for the unknown, her amazing artistic abilities, her life lived as a daily adventure, and her honesty. Jill, you have enriched my life. You have made me a better person. And I will be eternally grateful. You are missed.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend. You are such a sincerely loyal and loving friend, so I can only assume Jill felt the same feelings of love for you. I miss you and hope to see you soon. ~Aubrie
