With Sympathy...

I write this post in honor of a very dear friend and her family who, on Sunday, lost a brother...a son...a husband...a father.

In the midst of fretting over the valleys that have been carved into my life, I received a phone call informing me that my friend's brother had died....way too young, way too soon. I immediately had a flashback...a moment of deja vu...taking me back 10 years when I received a similar phone call, relating to this same friend, announcing the death of her brother who was on that ill-fated flight that crashed into the Everglades.

Ten years. Two brothers. Two sons.

It's amazing just how quickly your personal trials and tribulations can become so insignificant...how quickly a lesson can be taught...a lesson of thanksgiving...of living in the moment and loving the life that is yours. For tomorrow, as I was reminded today, is not promised.

My heart, my thoughts, my love and my prayers go out to my friend and her family. I pray that God will provide the comfort that they need to get them through their time of grief.

Blessings!
