I cried myself through the last 5 chapters, re-reading emotions. The underlying message that Hadley told herself...the same message I tell myself. "What is done, is done. No one knows what tomorrow will bring but you must be present."
Yesterday I watched a childhood friend marry. I saw the love, happiness and desire in her pink cheeks and bright blue eyes. I wept tears of joy for her; and tears of sorrow for myself. Selfish? Definitely. Stupid? Probably. But completely honest with myself? Yes.
Life is complicated with moments of happiness and moments of sadness.
Quote from the book...Hadley to Ernest:
"We'll always be friends - delicate friends, and I'll love you 'til I die, you know."
He gave me this our first Christmas together. I gave it back months ago. Memories hurt but are nessecary at times.
