Man, I wish I could just start with something witty & fun & kick off a week with a cheerful little jaunt. Nope. Not after this weekend... this was just not a good one.
You would think taking Friday off would be an even better excuse to have a good post for a Monday.
& you would even more so think that we're heading into the Holidays - bad things cant happen during the Holidays, right? Sadly.. not true.
Friday, I got the news that one of my dear friends passed away unexpectedly. It was one of those moments where the air gets knocked out of you & it feels like time stops & the news you just heard cant really be the words that come together to form the sentences that just went into your brain.
I know you all have seen her sweet face on my blog throughout the years.... my precious friend Kelly left this world to go sing front row in the Heavens for her Jesus.
The timing is just hitting harder to me because we were supposed to meet up for breakfast on Saturday.... but this actually started a week ago where I got a text last Saturday that she had a fall & wouldnt be able to meet up for our breakfast.
Bless her heart... a broken hip. That just sounded so painful & miserable & like some healing is going to be ahead. We stayed in touch all week with texts & getting updates while her surgery kept getting delayed. When she finally got her surgery in the wee-hours of the morning a few DAYS later (WHAT?) - I was so glad she would be on the road to healing.
& I know Kelly just wanted to be with her family & heal up surrounded by the ones she loved the dearest.
Especially with the Holidays - enjoy every good & small thing around you.
