Today was not easy.
No matter how I smiled I wanted to crawl back in bed and just sleep the whole day away, but I needed my babies surrounding me and it felt so good to be back in our classroom running around like a crazy person trying to keep all of my little duckies in a row. I honestly don't think I would have made it through the day without my girl keeping it real and sarcastic, my angel of a helper taking care of my babies and me all while cutting out everything I could find for her to cut out, and every one else at school letting me know if I needed anything no matter what they were there for me. I also had my own private army of prayers watching out for me and sending me their strength.
It felt so good to talk about Cathy and remember the good things and not only the sad. I miss my friend so much and it is not the same without her, but I can feel her with me and I know she was with us today.
Today was not easy, but somehow I made it through and we will make it through tomorrow and the next day.
This is how I will always remember my friend.
