I haven't been around here in a while.
My brother was killed in a plane crash. Last Saturday. I think it was last Saturday, still having problems with realizing what day it is.
I can't concentrate on much of anything. My attention span lasts about 1-2 hours for writing, a little longer if it's techie web stuff.
He was too young to die and it has devastated our family. My bro was married to his high school sweetie for over 30 years.
I miss him terribly. We were really close. It's like a part of me is gone. Forever.
I deny it most of the time because I don't want to accept that it's real. But I know it's real. And it really sucks.
It's a wake up call for me. A notice that I don't have forever to do what I want to do.
I will not for granted that I'm lucky my husband walks through the door every night. A kid who comes home from school. A family.
I guess I just wanted to say that your life can change in an instant and the people in your lives right now could be gone tomorrow.
Life's too short to hold a grudge. To sweat the small stuff. To squander time away as if there is an eternity here on Earth.
