True friends

I ran into someone a few weeks ago who I havent seen since Bella passed. This person was a friend and someone who was in Bella's life. In the past two years I have not received a phone call, e. -mail, card or any form of support from this person. It made me think how it is the moments that are the hardest when the people who really care stick around. So many people surprised me by reaching out to support me in the last few years. If I did not thank you, then I am thanking you now. Your cards on Isabella's birthday, Starbucks coffee and a good novel, constant phone calls, e-mails and support was never unappreciated. You letting me cry on your shoulder was never unnoticed. I think that often people stay way because they don't know what to say. To me, not saying anything is worse then saying the wrong thing. Sometimes the only thing you can say is, "I don't know what to say." But do not avoid me like it did not happen, because it did. I wish it did not, but ignoring it is not going to make it go away. Miss you Isabella
