Day 5-5% challenge- What can I improve upon? Celebrating each day of life.

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Feeling somewhat guilty for not blogging the last few days as I committed to but still coming to terms with the sudden loss (internal hemorrhage) of a lifelong friend's only child - a loving mom to 5 yr old twin boys who are miracles (twin to twin transfer syndrome requiring in utero surgery) and an 11 yr old son. My friend and her husband have been closer to us that siblings and I grieve with them. Their hope and faith will help carry them through. The next two days will be difficult with visitation and burial. . Thank-you to my SparkFriends who have expressed sympathy and understanding.

What can I improve on? Appreciating each day I'm alive, healthy and able to have and enjoy my treasured family around me.

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My prayer so out to you and your friends at this time. Something like this really reminds us that we have to live for today because none or us is guaranteed tomorrow. I think I will go call my kids and tell them I love them.

    Sorry to hear about this tragedy...I can only hope and pray for peace for you and your friend's family.

Wise words though, appreciate what you have because it may not be here tomorrow. I have to remember that.

    So sorry and my deepest condolences. It is so difficult to loose someone, but when it's a child . . . well the pain is excruciating. HUGS and prayers for you and the family.

    So sorry for your loss. Your friend is lucky to have your concern and caring. I know it hurts, though. I say go with your heart and blog when you feel it. Appreciate your ending message - cherish our loved ones; live each day!
