What do you do to take the pain away???
Monday, September 15, 2008
Okay, It is monday and let me tell you all week last week I was looking forward to my weekend. For once in the past few years of working 96 hours a week, I was going to finally take some time for myself. I had planned on going to a tattoo convention in Boston. My friend is my tattoo artist and he wanted me to get tattooed at the show. I have been looking forward to this for the past 2 months.
So here is where my great weekend turned into a weekend of hell and emotions. My best friend Kyle lost his mother to cancer on saturday. She has been fighting this battle for as long as I can remember. I know that it was her time to go because she was suffering so much and it was so hard on all of us to watch her go like this. I know that she is in a better place but it is so hard to know that she is gone. My friend Kyle is so much of a lost child right now. I do not know what to do for him, but just hug him when he needs it and be there.
And then to top it off my bestest, most wonderful, caring and dedicated friend/ business partner lost her mother unexpectedly on sunday afternoon. Her mother was not feeling very well and she has been in and out of the hospital for a full year now. She went to the hospital in the early morning and we lost her at about 12:30 in the afternoon. This is such a shock because this past friday I was talking to her and telling her that she was getting a tattoo as soon as she was ready. She was really just waiting to go get a pedicure done.
This is so hard on all of us. I know that I'm not truly family but I cry with them and I want the pain to go away..
Sorry I'm just a little bit of an emotional reck right now, I have to go to work and act like nothing is wrong but I just want to be that shoulder to cry on when these two people I love are going through so much pain.
If this makes no sense right now that is fine, but I just needed to tell someone what is going on. My head is such a mess right now.
