The Prettiest Star
I have no idea how to start this blog entry, other than to say a random lovely act brought me to tears. Why? My friend and bubble buddy who lost their partner, also to that bastard cancer, presented me with an amazing gift.
Janice now has a star named after her, not an ordinary star (no, no, no) but one of the brightest stars that can be seen on various night sky apps.
What makes this all the more special is that they didn’t know of Janice’s passion for astronomy understanding the night sky, nor that she had software on her macBook Air that would track constellations in real time, or she was choosing the type of telescope she wanted to see further into space.
I was numb and in tears for what is an amazing gesture. A coping mechanism is thinking Janice joined the stars, and now has one named after her to gaze down from the heavens. There’s so much symbolism in the Phoenix Constellation and my friends choice that I will for now keep personal. The particular constellation can be seen under the right conditions here in Blighty, but can be easily seen from Australia the country she loved with so much passion and truly came alive in for all the wildlife, Kangaroos, Koalas and more.
Thank you my Bubble Buddy x
There’s not much more than I can say other than, I have some amazing friends, which have been discovered in what is the crappiest journey of grief, love and a future lost.
Keep shining my Gorgeous and Beautiful star xxx
