I sit here thinking about something witty and funny to write in my next blog....and I struggle to be cheery today about the holiday season coming near. News of tragedy hit close to home last night. A very dear friend and her family had a tragic episode Wednesday evening. Our circle of friends are all pretty stunned and I know I couldn't sleep much last night after the news. I laid in bed thinking about her and her 4 children, replaying the news cast over and over in such disbelief. I kept thinking about how life is so precious and in an instant, life can change without even an apology.
As the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping comes near, We all need to stop and make sure that we tell those close to us how much we love them and spend as much time with them as possible. We just never know when tragedy will strike. I use to hear an old saying from a friend about needing a village to make families thrive and grow... and I suspect my dear friend and her family will need the same in this situation. Prayers go out to her and her 4 beautiful children. Angels are among us... and her children are blessed to have such a wonderful, brave mother who is alive and picking up the pieces today. May she be watched over by angles as they climb through the next days and weeks rebuilding from this tragedy.
