Ive had a pretty interesting week, emotionally. While celebrating my friends nuptials last Friday evening, we found out the boyfriend’s brother has a brain tumor. Im supposed to be the strong one in this situation, holding him up allowing him to break down. But I was quite the opposite. I was a bawling mess, and he was comforting me. Standing out on the dance floor, dancing to the couples dance, crying my eyes out, for the wrong reasons given the time and place. But to any strangers, I just looked like I was crying tears of joy.
The situation has since taken a turn for the somewhat better. Its looking like everything might be ok, but at the same time, its still a scary situation. We’ll know more in the coming weeks.
I wasn’t going to talk about it here. We have the support of our good friends and family. But then I realized, although virtually, your thoughts and words can often be comforting to me. Strange, considering I wouldn’t know if I was standing next to you in an elevator. And yet, I feel like some of you could be a good friend, if we ever met.
Its funny. You never realize how much you truly love someone, until something happens to their immediate family, and it completely rocks your own world.
