No Ranting Tonight

Grandy was all primed to post a rant tonight.

Blah blah blah...lazy people...yada yada...fricken' half-assed family...blah blah.

Then she logs into her email and is yet again rocked to her shoes with bad news.

A very sweet and lovely woman, who's daughter is just around my son's age, and they are friends, passed away in her sleep on Friday. WTF?!?

This lovely woman was about my age folks! She was beautiful, and such a good friend to so many. She and I were never that close, as our schedules kept getting in the way. But we sure could have been. She was my kind of lady for sure!! She was amazing!!!

She leaves behind a great husband and father, a beautiful daughter, and a young son. She will be missed for sure!!

Life is all about perspective folks. As I'm struggling with my own life events, struggling to keep things in balance and keep things together, I'm reminded about how truly precious life is.


I'm off to go cuddle my stinky, smelly, does-all-his-chores-half-assed son now.

Go hug all those you're close too!!!!

Oh no. I am so sorry. Yes, it does rock your world. And puts those half-assed done chores in perspective. Hugs.

Savoring the scent of my stinky seven year old is my current obsession. He was only gone for 11 days, but it SURE is nice to have him back...(I went and picked him up last night...)

Life is so precious!

Oh, how terrible!! I recently lost 3 very young cousins: 32, 36, and 28--so I know how awful it is when someone young and beautiful dies. Two of those cousins were more than just a "cousin"--they were like a little brother and sister. We grew up together and were just "closer" than the "average" cousins are. They all left children and spouses. :-(

*hugs to you*
