I missed a few days. I didn’t want to write this one. The most beautiful soul died so very suddenly. She was only 42. She taught right next door to me my first year in KC. She shook her head at me a lot, but was patient while I figured a few things out. She was so dedicated to her students, her family, her faith, her friends, & celebrating life in general. My heart breaks when I think of the hole left in this world. This morning…thinking of her family and classroom and colleagues?? I was just sick to my stomach. We would check in on Facebook. We kept meaning to have lunch. Every time I saw her it was as if no time had passed…great talks and even better hugs. The last conversation we had was in August. Her last words to me, “I luv you sis.” I love you too.
I’m going to celebrate a little more, just like she did. I’m going to play a bit more too…she was great about that. I am going to make time to see all the amazing people in my world before I am sad that they are gone and I didn’t realize so many days had passed.
If you have a minute, please say a prayer for her circle in this world…they are hurting something awful today.
