As you know, I started out the week having a lovely bout of panic/anxiety/depression, which has not completely gone away, but has been quelled a little. I was given a cosmic wake-up call mid-week when I learned that a dear, dear former colleague's 30-something daughter passed away in her sleep.This was, obviously, unexpected, as 30-something people aren't "supposed" to pass away in their sleep. It is really hard to throw yourself a major pity party when you're faced with how quickly life can change at the drop of a hat. Made my petty worries seem rather insignificant in comparison to the sheer magnitude of his loss.
If you are the prayerful type please keep this family in your prayers as they struggle to come to grips with this terrible loss.
