So sad

I got the news from an old co-worker that another old co-worker passed away this weekend. She had been out of work for a couple of weeks with the flu. Her family took her to the hospital on Friday night and she died Saturday afternoon. They still don't know exactly what was wrong her.

She was 42 years old. She was a single mom with three kids - ages 19, 16, and 9...

My heart aches for her family.

It is this kind of news that shakes me to the core and makes me realize I need to slow down and enjoy this life I've got. It goes by soooo quick!!!

How awful. My heart absolutely breaks when I think about children losing their mothers. I'll say a prayer for her and her family tonight.

The youngest is Sydney and Jordan's age. Wow, so sad for them. That is one of my greatest fears - something happening to me and my girls being left devastated. Now that I'm a single mom with an idiot ex and the fact that both my parents died by the time I was five-years-old...it is a real worry of mine.

So sorry for their loss.
