Waterfalls
It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Paula Gawne

I woke up tonight to the news that my friend Paula Gawne had died this morning. I am reeling. She was so alive and vibrant, I just didn't expect this news, and I am heartbroken and can't seem to stop crying.

I'd like to share what I just posted to her husband Bill's FB page, because I never want to forget what this amazing woman meant to me.

I would like to share with you how Paula became one of my dearest friends.

We knew each other vaguely through LiveJournal, she had added me after seeing my comments on mutual friend's journals, and we became friendly. Then one day, I posted something about wanting to die.

Paula tracked down my phone number, I don't know how, as I didn't have a contact page up at that time, and called me to
let me know that there were people in this world who cared deeply about me and didn't want to see me do something stupid.

Strangely enough, Paula always seemed to know when I needed to hear that. She would call me out of the blue when I was feeling particularly bad about things, even if I didn't post it, just to let me know I was loved and needed.

I am already missing her terribly, and I know that you and the girls are hurting badly right now and wish that I could fix it for you.

She was a wonder, and you were blessed with each other, for 40 years. I can only hope that Sam and I have so long a run of joy in our lives.

We love you, Sam and I do.

Borderline symptom of the day: sadgrieving

*love*

Yep, the world's broken.

You also have a knack for calling out of the blue when people are feeling particularly bad about things, even if they didn't post it, just to let them know they're loved and needed. ;-)

I'm so sorry for the loss everyone who knew her is feeling. The world lost an angel for sure.
