Why is it when we trust our hearts to someone , they let us down?   I do not understand why it has to be this way.

Have you ever really loved someone, yet knew they would leave you? Have you known that at one time or another you would have to walk away ? Well I know that many of us go through this whether we want to admit it or not.

Sometimes our friends grow apart from us, find a different path. When this happens no matter how much it hurts, we have to push them out of the nest and do what is right for them and us.  How hard it must be for the momma bird to be the one pushing the baby out of the nest.  They have been in that nest together more than mom and baby , one depending on the other for their life.

That is how friendship is too.  When you share your life with a friend, you open your heart and secrets to that person. You bare your soul,open your vulnerable spots to them. You become the one they run to when they need you.

They become your solace in the storm of life.  Together you believe you can conquer the world.  You share the giggles, the joys,sorrows,and fears.  You lean on each other. You hold each other.

You find yourself thinking of that friend when you do not hear from them.  You worry a little, and hope that despite all the daily strife, stress that you hope you did not push them away.

Sometimes you just pray that God protects them and keeps them safe whether they want to be with you or not.   And all the time you pray, you thank God for that friend.

Life is a journey from birth to death.  The road is bumpy,rocky,muddy at times icey.   Even with this road meandering ,bending, tearing at your heart, you want the best for the friend.  As you travel down the road  with that friend or alone  you find yourself  thanking God for them.

When you part ways and we all do reluctant or not remember the joy,hope,smiles they brought you. Remember the happy moments the way they made you feel, thank them and thank God for them.

With love,
