We were soul mates. He knew what I was thinking even if I didn't tell him. I could finish his sentences before he could. We shared a house, a family and a life. We even shared a birthday. Today is our birthday.
Not too long ago I was reading a book and it said that June 8th is "Best Friends Day." I had to look it up and see for myself.
Sure enough, "Best Friends Day is June 8th." Is this a coincidence or not? I think not. I miss my soulmate with all my heart. I think of him every minute of everyday.
As I was working in my yard I saw this statue of St. Francis. It has been standing there in the same place for a lot of years. The branch on the tree has grown and shaped itself to the statue. They have been together for so long that now they are almost one. You could move the statue and the branch could still remain, but it won't be as strong as it was. I feel the same. For all those years we were best friends. With Jay's physical presence no longer here, I feel not as strong. But with the strength that God has given me and the support of my family and friends, I will be as strong as I can, one day at a time, until our souls are together again.
