I awoke this morning to a text message from my son Jason.
I hadn’t heard the news he was asking about.
I had to go searching.
I had just woken up, so things were bleary and my heart was pounding trying to find out what had happened.
Life is like that. We always THINK we have time to tell those we love that we do love them.
We think there is time to mend fences, to reconnect, to make memories ---
But we don’t. Things can change in the blink of an eye.
You may remember my mom’s sister, my Aunt Joy who was on the Alaska cruise with me last July. We are only 5 years apart in age and I worshiped her growing up. She was the older sister I never had.
Through google I found out some details I didn’t want to read.
Her son, my cousin Andy was killed in a motorcycle accident last night.
We are gutted. Senseless.
I don’t have any more details.
But I feel the need to take a couple days off of social media.
I will return, but right now, my thoughts are with my family.
Quiltville Quote of the Day
My heart is reeling. If you still have your parents, call them, forgive them, love them. The same thing with your siblings. Any rift needs to be mended. Reach out and talk to your children. Life is busy, and we always think we have more time. The fact is, we don't.
We really don’t.
