I didn’t say anything yesterday, but a friend of mine at work is going through a really rough time. Her family was in a tragic accident and I can’t imagine how tough it is to lose so many people you love, unexpectedly and simultaneously. If you’re reading this, please pray for her and her family. I know our school will do something to show our support, but I hope that our prayers can help heal her through this time in her life.
It is so difficult to understand losing someone you love until you actually lose them. I lost three of my grandparents and a few great aunts and uncles. I was sad when they were gone, especially my grandparents who I was closer to, but what was worse was to see the sadness in my parents to lose their parents. It really makes you look ahead and say, I don’t know when that will be me. When my parents time comes, will I be as strong as they were? I’ll tell y’all...the day my grandfather died was the first time I really saw my dad cry. I know he cried before, of course, everybody cries. That day, he was sobbing. Love is a powerful thing.
Let’s try to cherish it. Here’s a challenge for my readers, even if you are far and few between:
If you have a loved one you couldn’t live without, call them today.
