I’ve been a little quiet over the last 24-48 hours. Truth is, my family received some sad news and I’ve been processing. I have a beautiful cousin, we were closer as children and then she married and moved to Egypt and we kept up to date on facebook. Almost daily pictures of her and her beautiful children, the youngest of which is only 4 years old. She was always smiling…always, without fail. She was in her thirties, the epitome of health and happiness and on Saturday night, while out for dinner, she died. Suddenly. No warning. She wasn’t sick…that anyone knew of. We’re still waiting to find out exactly what happened we’re guessing some kind of massive brain aneurism or something of that ilk. Between collapsing at the dinner table and getting to hospital 5 minutes later she was gone. A young family ripped apart and devastated in a split second.
I’ve talked a bit about my depression and how that makes me feel very dark and black sometimes and the thoughts that run through my head frighten me sometimes. But this….this has me realising how precious life is. How short and so very, very precious. All of us are loved by someone…some by few, most by many. I’m going to try to celebrate that in my darker moments.
You took my heart by surprise
I wasn’t expecting that
