This morning I learned of a tragic accident. Our former sister-in-law, Kate, lost her mother to a bus accident. Apparently her mother was out for a walk, and a bus driver that was intoxicated, and had 15 children in the bus with her, hit and killed her. She was out on $50,000 bail a few hours later. (ridiculous)
Fortunately, for Kate's family, they had a wedding last weekend, and her mother was there. What a blessing to know that they were able to celebrate a joyous occasion together prior to this happening. Oh, the frailty of life. We never know from moment to moment what will occur, which is why we need to count our blessings daily, and hold those we love close, leaving no doubt of our love for them.
I am grateful for this life, the trials, the blessings, the love we have for family and friends, and finally that our families can be eternal.
