Jaya and Herrad, Amsterdam.
After three days of having our lovely friend Jaya here visiting us, we realised it was nearly time for her to go, we had one hour left then she sadly had to leave.
We all cried buckets of tears, then dried our eyes and enjoyed our last hour together, which typically went much too fast and before we knew it was nearly 15.00 and Jaya had to go.
I cried, Richie did too, then we reminded ourselves what a beautiful few days it had been, seeing our good friend Jaya again, has been good for the three of us.
Last night Richie remarked that Jaya's visit has given us a lot of positivity which we were lacking, it is good her visit has given us such a boost.
By four o'clock I finally managed to stop crying and concentrate on remembering all the lovely moments of the visit.
Considering that Jaya did not arrive until 20.00 on Thursday and had to leave at 15.00 today, Sunday.
We really did manage to get a lot of talking, laughing and reminiscing done, of course sometimes we cried when remembering sad events in our pasts.
I'm so glad I did not let my nerves stop me seeing such a dear, good friend like Jaya.
We've known each other 33 years now, I think that we have a very special friendship, I'm so glad that Richie and Jaya really hit it off when they met.
We really are so fortunate, the three of us, Richie Jaya and me for being such close friends, a very special friendship indeed one that I treasure always.
These three days have been wonderful, and they will give us alot of strength and positivity to carry on making the best of everything that we can, it will also be difficult but I'm sure we will be all right, Jaya left sunshine in our hearts.
