Here is something I wrote today. So that said Be the Friend you would want for yourself. Hugs

Suzie: Hey

Lidia: Hi How are ya doin?

Suzie: Fine and you?

Lidia: well wanted to see what you are up too?

Suzie: Nothin much

Lidia: Well ya know I am coming over in a bit, but I will call ya first ok?

Suzie: Sure ok.

they both hang up. Suzie is waiting. and she waits. and in vain

Cause Lidia never called nor showed up. Mind you Suzie's front door was unlocked
for several hours.

Next day Lidia calls again. She gets this voicemail:

Hey this is Suzie I am busy, so you'll call me ok? Gotta go. Click

Morale of the story is: if you say you will do something and cant do it, then at least
call even leave a voicemail. For you see if you forget
your friends, sooner or later, they know you are TOO BUSY
and have forgotten them. So they wont call for fear of harassing you.
Thus you have no friend anymore. Is your friendships not worth of value for you to do this?

So my friends on here, if I have offended you unknowingly, please accept my apologies…My life has been chaotic and upsetting, least to say. Have a great day knowing you made me smile! Hugs

No need to apologize, what you just went through, while it usually bring out the best in friends, some times it shows the worst in them. Most of these don"t know how to respond to such a loss, when a simple hug and a "I love you" is all your looking for. But I do agree there are some whom are just to self centered to care.
Temi, continue your grieving as you need, but always remember that I do care about what you need, and understand how you feel.
Your Friend

Wanishi Wado Thank you Tom…because the most idiotic question to date is "How are you doing?" I usually just say I am doing. Hugs

You are welcome my friend, and I agree that can be the most unfeeling and inappropriate question to ask at times.
Sending you a big cyber Hug!
Tom
