I work a part time job and right now it is kind of slow, so I am only working about 1 day a week.
When I went to work this past Friday, I hadn't worked since the previous Friday. I usually don't see most of the people I work with except at work.
When I entered the break room to clock in, I was saddened to learn that our HR manager had been killed in an auto accident while visiting family in her home state for her birthday. It was such a shock!
Apparently, my immediate supervisor had tried to call me and tell me but we weren't home and she didn't want to leave a message like that on my voice mail.
Everyone at work just seemed in a daze and rightly so. It's just so sad. Her husband had stayed here with their two small children while she made the trip.
I have spent the weekend trying to comprehend how and why this happened. I had just seen her the last time I worked and now I would never see her again, nor would her family and friends.
It really was a wake up call for me. You can be here today and then gone tomorrow and that we never know how long our time here will be so we must live it to the fullest.
Try new things, take chances, and LIVE LIFE!
It is so precious.
