Today's Post, Shaken, really hit home. She writes about the passing of a friend's 8 year old little boy, and the horrific feeling of realize it can be gone all too soon. I know the feeling too well.
The blog entry is beautifully written (as all her posts are). However, it was a commenter (It think it might even be Kelle's dad) whose words really resonated with me, as a mother who lost her newborn. It reads;
"In a moment--even a second, our lives can be changed forever. It is so important to realize the fragility of life and the precious delicacy of those around us. Not to make us live in fear, but to make us fiercely love and focus on what is forever..."
So beautifully eloquent.
Maybe this is our lesson in all of this, to realize how fragile and beautiful life is around us. I just wish our lesson had been taught to us in a less extreme way.
