Yesterday I was carrying on a conversation with a friend on facebook about quinoa. I left and when I got home went straight to bed.
This morning when I got up, I checked facebook and found that my friends 15 year old son was in an accident and died shortly after our conversation.
I was shocked and horrified and saddened. Life is short - much too short for some! But, even after living to an old age, life seems short. I think of my mama. She was 88 when she crossed over to see the face of Jesus. It was certainly her gain - but our loss.
The same for Nathan. He is dancing on streets of gold and praising loudly as he did here on earth.
Not sure what my point is. Where my thoughts are going.... just thinking that friends and family are precious. Life is eternal. We should live each day as if it were our last. I know kind of cliche'ish.... but never the less.... true.
