It’s been a bad news day and it’s only 7:43 a.m.
I received a phone call from my husband this morning with the news that his cousin found his wife dead in their bathroom from an apparent brain aneurysm.
She was only 32. They have young children.
We aren’t close to this family but perhaps because of her age or perhaps because she has young children, my heart breaks for the husband and particularly for her children.
What do you say to a child who just wants his mom? I wish I was religious and could use the idea of a heaven or angels looking down. It seems an easy explanation and at least a nice idea.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to promote this idea when I don’t believe it.
My condolences to the Forbes family and to the children. My heart breaks for you all.
Tears were also shed for the three million people in Haiti who are expected to be impacted from last night’s ‘catastrophic’ earthquake.
My condolences to anyone who is has friends, family and loved ones on that Caribbean island.
I will be thinking of you.
