Heather Feather will be in my Heart Forever..

A few days from now, 8 days to be exact, Heather will go back to Utah and live her life just the way it was 2 months ago before she left and work temporarily here in the Philippines. I don't even want to think about her leaving. :( But days pass so fast, we hardly can tell and the only time we realize it's over is when it is -over.

Now I believe that friendship is really something that can change someone's heart. Before I met Heather, I always have this "weirdness" inside of me that I kept holding back because I know that no one will ever understand. In the meantime maybe, some may pretend that they do, but in the end of everything, they might always think that I am "not normal".

Not with Heather. We have the same wavelength. She taught me to care less of what others will think or say as long as I'm not doing anything wrong. I love my Filipino culture and I love my race. And I would love it even more if some of us will try to learn that there are things that we should stop giving attention to.. -like living a life from a set of standards created by people with a dogmatic rather than a conservative point of view.

I love her so much. It breaks my heart thinking I'll be coming to work but won't be seeing her pink mug elsewhere. I'll miss having lunch with her, as she would always ask "What's that?" or "What is this?", pertaining to the food usually served at the pantry. Oh how I'll miss her voice telling me how stupid I am not to take care of my escalations.. :) I will miss her to pieces. *sigh*

It's not right to have a heavy heart at this time. I have to make her last week of stay as happy as it could be. For I'll never know when will I get to see her again. How I wish to work my butt off like crazy so I'll be able to visit her someday there in her far away land and meet Dill and her grandma.

....let me end this one now before I even start crying.. :(

  1. Karla you have made just as strong an impression on my soul. I knew instantly that we were meant to be friends when you emailed me about our common interest in "being green". I was so excited to meet you.
    You have been a genuine friend to me and I will forever be grateful for your presence in my life this summer. I am able to be myself around you, with no boundaries and no expectations. You understand why I don't get how people would care about materialistic goods and what others are wearing. We joke and laugh like old friends. We seem to always see into each others soul and our experiences are permanently imprinted upon one another.

    I am so sorry for your loss but feel blessed to have been here for you, for your tragic birthday. To have the opportunity to make you smile was an honored gift. The necklace is ours, to never be forgotten. I know you will make it to visit me one day and I hope I can travel back here as well to see your home and meet your sweet brother!

    This is not the end.

    You are such a dear soul... Mahal Kita!

    ps. Josh and Heather forever and ever hehehehe
