Just when I was attempting to pull things together we had horrible news Thursday evening. One of Mr. 26's very best friends was killed in California after being hit by a car. He was 25, in and Navy and just a wonderful young man. Mr. 26 was part of a group of four young men who knew each other since middle school, they swam together, lived very close to each other and although all went to different colleges they remained so close all these years. It is a tragic loss for so many people, the young man's family, the three young friends left behind, and for the driver of that vehicle and their family, no one will ever be the same. So I am continuing to stay off the grid here, I am just trying to be present for my son when he needs me. To love him and hug and help him through this horrible loss.
Hug your kids, your grand kids and all of their friends. Life changes so quickly.
