It's been awhile since I last posted. Crap...I don't even know what to update.
Since the anniversary of my dad's death came and went I was feeling in a big blue funk. My running, which I had learned to love, was thrown to the wayside 2 weeks before the first of July.
I'm a sabotager. Obviously this is something I don't realize I do,but it's after the fact that I tend to realize that when I'm feeling emotional I sabotage good things in my life. I tend to eat too much, stop the exercising, hibernate in my house....(I'm sure you get the picture).
We did get to enjoy a little bit of some of our summer. Scott had 3 weeks off in Aug/Sept. that we were going to spend camping and puttering around the house. Unfortunately, my sister in law's brother was killed in a helicopter crash and we decided that we were needed down in the Kootenays.
So we spent longer than we anticipated in the Koots,but it was needed. During that time an old friend from highschool's son died unexpectedly. He had some metabolical challenges through life,but had surpassed many with his capabilities. I had just talked to her at our reunion about how inspirational her son and her and her hubby were to me. His death broke my heart(as it did the whole community of K*itimat.)
My mother in law and our amazing nephew came for a week long visit with us. We had an awesome time with the two of them. Shortly after they returned back to J*affray we got news that my sis in law's best friend's son was killed in a hit and run. The same sis in law who only weeks earlier had lost her brother.
The death of this little 8 year old boy has thrown the community(and obviously without saying the family)into some deep sadness. It really makes you get a sense of how fragile life really is. My dad's death was extremely sad;however, it gives me comfort to know we got to know our dad. He got to see his grandchildren.
This little 8 year old boy's life was cut short before it should have. I know and truly believe that God has a plan with everything,but I do wonder sometimes what can be the plan with a little boy dying so young. No parents should ever have to bury their child. It's so heartbreaking....
So that brings me to today. My boys are healthy, funny, loving, and I was emotional when I sent them off to school. Not that they were going to school,but that for whatever reason they are still here with us.
Life can change at any moment.
