A friend of mine passed away this weekend.
It was sudden. Unexpected. A freak accident. I mean such a freak accident that I'm still surprised I'm writing this sentence. One day we were standing in the grocery store where she worked talking about German shepherds and god knows what else and then the next day, I'm finding out via Facebook (of all places) that she's gone.
And she shouldn't be. She really shouldn't be.
It's left me— understandably I guess— in a weird place. I'm trying very hard to do what I need to do, to continue living my life or whatever because I can and I should but I keep getting distracted. The kind of distracted where you sort of just start staring off into space because your head's figuring out that everything's changed but maybe the rest of you hasn't quite caught on yet.
So please, bear with me and please, if you can spare prayers and well wishes, send some her family's way.
