Grief is a funny thing, because it comes in waves. One minute I am fine, the next minute I just miss her so much. Today is one of those days that I just miss her. I want to see that smile again. I just want to hear her voice. I want to wonder with her in amazement at how lucky we are to be such good friends. I want to laugh at the stupid things we did in intermediate school, I want to dance with her to some country music, I want to sing some crazy song in the car with her, I want to laugh at something stupid one of us did, I want to dream about the things we will do when we are old and gray and sitting on the front porch of a beach house for our annual girls weekend.
Today I just miss my friend.
She always got mad at me for not smiling with my Teeth. Every photo she has is a full on smile with all her teeth. I think I am going to spend the rest of this week smiling like Julie.
