I was going to post this update yesterday, but I didn't. So here it is.
Lent week two went well in terms of what I'm fasting from. But the latter half come to close on a more somber not. A good friend and ex-girlfriend passed away on Saturday, March 9. She was admitted into the hospital in the middle of January. She was on the road to recovery when heart problems took her life. She was loved by many online and off.
Losing someone you were close to is always hard. The grieving process takes time. But as you grieve, you still need to live your daily life as best as possible. I am thankful that I have someone special to keep me sane through this time. It's not easy for her either. She is also grieving the loss of the same friend. In essence, I'm here for her too.
I'll be grieving going forward for a while. Let's see what week three holds.
