I met Josie in 2007 when we worked together. If race played a factor we would have never jelled as she is Mexican/American and I am white. But she didn’t see anything else in me other than someone who needed a friend. Something that our modern day society sometimes seems oblivious to.
My world was falling apart. My Mother was fading fast and death was quickly approaching. My Mom was my best friend. I felt as if a part of me died with her, but Josie took me under her wing. She loved me, comforted me and most of all, she didn’t let me die with my mother. She showed me how to be strong not only for myself but for my family. I am a mother of 7.
I needed someone who had felt what I felt. Someone who knew just what I was going through. Josie had lost both her parents before I lost my Mom. She is a little older than me, but she is my BFF. She completes me on so many levels. Friend, motherly figure, Auntie to my children. The one who reminds me to be appreciative for my husband who loves me and takes really good care of me, my children and his Mom & my Dad. She is My Earth Angel. I always tell her God brings us those we need when we need them most.
He brought me Josie. He always has a plan. Here I am today!
In October it will be 8 years of friendship. She knows my deepest darkest secrets and she still loves me unconditionally and encourages me, flaws and all.
If you are struggling, keep the faith. God has a plan for you. If you are blessed like I was, God will send you your Earth Angel. He sent me mine. Thank You Josie and Thank You God!! I am Blessed. – Noelle ❤
