My name isCourtney and my story is a little bit different than what we normally see here on Rightly Royce. I grew up playing soccer and basically living on the field with my team who turned into some of my closest friends. Four of us became our own little team/family/best friend group and spent as much time together as possible. One of these girls was my dear friend, Brittany. Brittany was the one of the most down to Earth, kind, selfless individuals you'd ever meet in this life. After many years of friendship and growing up together, we each moved on to different things. I was serving a mission for my church and she was playing college soccer in Nebraska. While at school, Brittany felt like she needed to serve a mission and put in her paperwork. I remember the day she emailed me and told me she would be serving the people of Resistencia, Argentina and how excited she was! I came home from my mission in July and Brittany left in August. That month that we had together will always be one of the biggest tender mercies in my life.
our feelings and get help if you need it. I went to therapy after Brittany had passed and I know that it helped me to come back to reality and take my next step forward. Remember that every day with those we love is a blessing. Make sure they are aware of your love for them and that you are grateful for their presence in your life.
