The past year has been a serious transistion for me.  

About 3 years ago my best friends marriage was falling apart.  Numerous reasons that a very complicated.  I being her best friend and “partner in crime“, made it my job to take care of her and see her through.

I pretty much put my life on hold.  My marriage, my home, my life, got put on a shelf and I was literally on call 24hrs a day 7 days a week for 2 years.  I went to Attorneys appointments, therapy appointments, stayed up talking all night on numerous occassions.  I lived her life.  Thank god for my husband, I knew my son was in good hands.

Fast forward to today.  The women who had been falling apart at the seems, who called me at least a half dozen times a day, no lie, just to check in and make sure I was still here, is happy, healthy and in a good relationship with someone that truly adores her.  

I sometimes think this transition was harder on me than her.  The project I had poured my heart and soul into, was done.  She didn’t need me anymore.  That’s what I thought.  I was depressed.  Then the phone would ring and on the other end would be “I miss you.  Let’s go to dinner.”  She still needs me.  Just in a healthier way now.
