i am so sorry
wishing i could stop the pain
knowing that i can't
Two very sad things happened this week. Early in the week, one of the special education teachers passed away of a brain aneurysm in her classroom. She had two children under the age of five. The thought of that fact is almost too much for me to hold on to.
The second thing is this morning my best friend told me her father died. I am heartbroken for her. I am of that age- where parents pass away. It is hard to find a friend wth two living parents. I am so blessed that both of my parents are alive and at this moment healthy. My mom battled cancer last year- but emerged cancer free... but I constantly worry. I want my children to really know their grandparents.
Sorry for the sad post. Guess that is where I am today. I need to find ways to move out of this sadness and into a place of thankfulness. Anything can happen- which is why it is so important to always make sure that those in your life know how much you love them- and to try very hard to not take life for granted.
