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.

hate to say that first because I fancy myself a yoga chic too who is into feng shui and a minimalist life but it's just not all true!*
I do forget to recycle*
LOVE reading and music and most things crafty (the idea of them - very fickle and creative urges come and go faster than light or sound)*
Grand chef and baker in my own mind and kitchen - love to mix and match recipes for a glorious new concoction*
Gardening would be very successful - I have a flair but short attention span can cause casualties*
True bliss is my home filled with three beautiful children (four on the weekends - an amazing Goddaughter)*
did forget to feed the beautiful children lunch once when they were too small to remind me*
can't find socks for all on some crazy mornings*

can't help my right brain optimism*
