The other day someone said to me (in all innocence I am sure) “Can you believe it has been a year?”

Yes. Yes I can.

It will have been a year on April 10th, 2017 since my best friend of 27 years passed away.

I know it has been a year, because every day I reach for the phone to text her. Everyday I see something that reminds me of her sass. Every week I hear a song and am instantly transported to a concert we saw together.

Yes. I know it has been a year.

The thing no one…
