Those of you who read my blog regularly know that about a year and a half ago I suddenly lost a close friend and it rocked my world. You can read about it here and here. Well, today my world was rocked again. My friend's widow tragically passed away yesterday in a scuba diving accident. Him and his girls were spending the long weekend in BC relaxing. I am numb with grief once again. I can't believe that someone we just saw and talked to is gone. Just when life was seeming "normal" after losing their mom, those two girls are now orphans and having to deal with the loss of another parent. My heart breaks for them and for the extended family.
I am thankful that Kevin was able to come out of the hospital today and we can spend the day together sharing memories. And, I know that my boys are in good hands with my mom until Kevin and I can get home tomorrow and comfort them too because I know all three of them are sad for their friends today.
I'm going to close by sharing a card I made yesterday at my friend Rose's house. Kevin's night nurses were absolutely fantastic while he was in the hospital and he asked me to make some cards for them. I chose to use nice soft colors (Pink Pirouette, So Saffron and a new In Color, Pistachio Pudding).
Hug your loved ones tight, tell those who mean the most to you that
you love them, keep in touch with old friends, be kind and thoughtful and live
with no regrets because you never know when something will
happen that can change everything in an instant...you never know when something tragic will happen and someone you talked to just a few days ago will be gone.
