No One Was Expecting That…

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.

Then you closed your eyes
You took my heart by surprise
I wasn’t expecting that

    Really sorry to hear your news. Sudden death is the worst kind as you don’t have time to prepare for your grief like I had, for example, with my father. My thoughts are with you and your family

      Thank you Rachel. I can’t even imagine what her husband and children are feeling right now. It’s so easy in sl for time to get the better of us. It has made me realise the value of time.

      thanks Caity…I’m focussing on it giving me a better perspective and being less wasteful with my time. Just brings home that you really do not know what is going to happen every day when you wake up.
