Late last night, I found out that my brother-in-law's brother died in a horrific car accident.
I cannot even begin to fathom the pain there. Wife, daughter, mother, brother, sister. My heart goes out to them all. I am still a little shocked myself.
My training professionally has equipped me to deal with this. My personal experiences also help. But...
It hits close to home. A young couple. Sudden death. But for the grace of God, it could have been me mourning right now. Today is Alexis's birthday. We get to celebrate life while someone mourns a life cut short.
Life is precious. We need to remember this. Go hug your loved ones for me today. Spend a little extra time to let someone know you care. It can be taken from you all too quickly.
