This year would be the first year of a lot of events without her for the very first time. She has been a huge chunk of my life that it’s so weird not to be able to just pick up the phone and talk to her right away. Sometimes I wonder how long will it takes for me to stop reaching out to my phone to call her out of habit at certain times or days of the years…

Thank you so much for sharing your story too. It really means a lot hearing it and I really appreciate it. Happy Valentine’s Day! :)
