why do they take the good ones??


“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”…Ghandi

this past month has not been an easy one….first Bruce and Margie….

then a lady I work  with lost her only  daughter and the daughter’s boyfriend in a tragic car crash..such a senseless accident…..only a few blocks from their home..

Her mother  spoke with the local newspaper and this link is the story..

life is short…treasure each moment…some days are harder than others…


the sun will rise…it may be behind the gray skies of November…but we are just thankful to be able to ‘keep an eye on the prize’


  1. I am so sorry to hear about the death of your coworker's daughter and the daughter's boyfriend. Life is precious, indeed.

  2. So sorry to hear about your co-workers loss ... we never know what's around the corner; have to make the most of every minute ... too bad we have to be reminded of that by the unexpected passing of someone.

  3. It was very sad to read about the tragic loss of your friend's daughter and her boyfriend. It's amazing how often completely innocent folks are killed in traffic accidents while those causing the devastation are completely unhurt.

  4. Itis so hard to hear of someone's life cut short by a senseless act of any kind. We're so sorry for your friend's loss. Those are the times that we sometimes question the "why" of things...and never really find an answer. Maybe the lesson is that, like you say, every moment is a blessing not to be taken for granted. It can be taken from any of us in the blink of an eye. Man, life is just always one big lesson, eh??

  5. I too am sorry to hear of your friend's daughter and her boyfriend. Loosing a loved one is never easy and when it's a tragic loss it's that much harder. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and their family during this difficult time. {{hugs}}

    I finally had some time to get caught up on your blog! Hope all is well where you are! =0)

  6. Nineteen years very sad. My heartfelt sympathy for the mother.


  7. I have the most wonderful friend who is 70 years of age. He was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I cannot imagine living in the world without but he is preparing us for his death. Discovering cancer was a surprise to him and to us as he is so health-conscious. It is not easy to witness him dying, but the gift is that we know what is coming. If death really is a natural part of life, which it is, why are we always so unprepared for it? Here's to living life fully one minute, one hour, one day at a time.
