This week...

This past week was a little stressful and sad and I was just not feeling my normal blogging self.  

~Last Friday, I attended a viewing for a really nice guy who went to my high school who was killed in a car accident on New Year's Eve. In addition to knowing him from high school, his mom works at my school in our cafeteria and is one of the sweetest, nicest people I've ever met. It was an unbelievably sad and emotional event for all who knew him but I felt it was important to show his family my support. I just wish there was more I could do for them...

~ The very next morning, my grandfather was admitted to the hospital because of chest pains that woke him up during the night. Very scary but luckily, his stress test came back normal and he seems to be doing better! 

~That same afternoon, I found out that the grandmother (who I also knew from many events over the years--she was such a sweet, funny lady!) of my best friend  from high school passed away. :(

~These are definitely times that make me stop and think about things. Life is short and I'm trying to embrace each moment with my family and friends. I'm really grateful that I was able to take the afternoon off of work on Friday so I could go to "Nana"'s funeral. It was a beautiful service and I'm so glad I was able to be there for my sweet friend and her family. Thinking about the events of the past few weeks really make me think about how hard it would be to get through various life events without a strong faith in God and his never-ending love. I'm so glad that I have my faith to rely on during sad times.
