Today, October 21st, would have been the 41st birthday of one of my dearest friends, Brenda.
Brenda passed away in 2005.
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her. I keep her photo on the bulletin board in my home office and because we shared an addiction to lip gloss, I think of her every time I apply it or when I discover the next big thing - I very often think, even now, that I need to call her and tell her about it.
She was vivacious and fun, demanding and moody. She was unique and smart. She was a good friend, daughter, sister, girlfriend and mother. I miss her. The world is a little less glossy without her.
