I had been writing something different to post today when I got the news:
One of my husband’s high school friends passed away last Friday.
How horribly sad… my heart just aches for the loss his family is experiencing. I went to the Internet to see what the arrangements were, and was stunned.
A second classmate, in a completely separate city, also died on Friday.
It’s moments like this when your breath just catches in your chest and everything feels like it is moving slow motion and you try to wrap your head around it. How can something like this happen? Both were 40, both had kids — it’s not supposed to be like this.
But it so often is.
Life, in all of its imperfection, deals some pretty raw hands. Loved ones are taken all too soon. People sustain terrible injuries in accidents. Jobs are lost.
I don’t want to compare circumstances or say which is harder to deal with. Really, they all suck.
Rather, I just wanted to take this time to remind you to find the blessings in your life and appreciate them. It could be loved ones, the roof over your head, a working vehicle…
What are you grateful for in your life?
