this week was tough on the heart. i heard about the sudden and untimely death of a friend (who was also a former student and later became my colleague). he was so young! it was so heartbreaking. the outpouring of grief from all the people whose lives he touched was amazing, but not surprising for someone as nice as he was. i hope he sees how much he was loved.
and then a day or two ago i also learned of another friend’s battle with a serious illness. this is someone i haven’t been in touch with for quite a while, but i have always kept her in my heart. i miss her so much. she’s a wonderful, beautiful person who left her cushy job at a major bank to become a missionary. just imagine. and now she’s really sick and i can’t help but think how life is so unfair!
we are always reminded how life is short. too short. so whatever it is you’ve always wanted to do — go do them. let’s not wait. let’s all be who we want to be, and do what we’ve always dreamed of.
