What a strange day yesterday. Aside from the gloomy weather (that was very much welcomed) I got two unrelated phone calls that different friends of mine had suddenly lost their fathers. It was so unexpected and the news left me with this heavy pit in my stomach just wishing there was something I could say or do to take away the pain from them… ugh, that feeling of losing a parent so young, it’s tragic.
The feeling is still lingering today though I am reminded that along with death there is new life. My sister (in-law) who lives in Costa Rica, gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Lani Lei around 9:00 this morning. I am patiently waiting for the first photos to arrive via text but I can only imagine how elated she must be! I am so proud of her and can’t wait to meet my new little niece.
It’s days like these that remind me to slow down and take a moment to remember just how thankful and grateful I am for my good health and amazing family and friends. I don’t know what I would do with out them.
Happy Friday everyone. xo
