Tonight, I experienced a loss that will forever change the way I enjoy life.
For 5 years and 2 pant sizes, I have relied on my closest companion to get me through migraines, depression, celebrations, relaxation, and adventures.
From Utah to Florida......
From 170 pounds to 140 pounds...........
Two years ago I noticed the thinning and loss of strength, but comfort was more important than lifespan.
Last year, due to an unfortunate mishap, two of the four necessary had to be cut out.
Even with the quickly receding coverage, my work days and weekends were still better because of the love.....
I returned from evening church and decided that tonight's enjoyment would be needed again tomorrow at work.
I took my left leg out and then in a bizarre standing accident, I fell. The trauma was horrendous.
The shock. The disbelief. The grieving.
In ceremonious movement, I chunked them in the laundry. At this time, the plans have not been finalized but I will somehow chop them up and repurpose into something awesome.....even though the front pockets have been cut out.
Rest in pieces....
