Sad and thankful

Today was a sad day for me, as I found out that a friend, and a mother to my kids' friends lost her 20 year long battle with cancer early this morning.
A day to shed tears for her, her husband and her two young kids.
A day to hug other friends as we try to make sense of this loss.
A day to reflect on the fragility of life and be reminded to treat every day as the gift that it is.
A day to hug my kids a little tighter and be so very thankful for a healthy family.
