Of Life and Death

“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.”

A friend of mine just lost her husband. My heart goes out to her. He was very young and it was sudden and unexpected. I'm shocked and heart broken for her and her 3 beautiful babies.
