I am grateful we were given a second chance by the universe. It was like a loose string having chance to be tied together again after all these years.
I want you to be at my child’s christening and name you her godmother — heck, I still want you to be by my side as I blow the candle on my fiftieth birthday.

They never asked me why I always wore long sleeve shirts, even if the sun was shining bright out. They never noticed that I stopped eating.
Don’t be one of those people who belittle the word. Don’t say it when you aren’t ready. Don’t say it when you feel obliged to. Don’t say it because you want that person to forgive you. Don’t say it because you want to ask for favors. Don’t say it because you’re settling for something you think you deserve.
