Today marks 4 weeks since the sudden passing of our niece, Lori. We were asked, at her service, to “remember Lori.” Every day, in her honor and memory, I try to fill in my “dash” with a little more than I might have before this tragic loss which was a HUGE reminder that there are no guarantees in life, and I remember Lori. We often say “tomorrow is another day,” but I don’t say it anymore. I am sure Lori expected to wake up on Saturday morning and have a regular weekend with her family and friends. In life, we really do only have NOW.
So for now, I am off to class. Then I will be taking some time off to be with Mitch, Derek and Jolene. YAY! Tomorrow there will be NO 9:30 class. Monday Ellen will be holding up the fort, subbing at 8:30 and 11:30. Tuesday night both classes are cancelled. Wednesday Ellen will be pinch hitting again at 8:30 and 11:30. I will be back on schedule Thursday, Friday and Saturday so on.
Thank you all so much for your support. I am so lucky to have the most amazing people in my life and I am grateful for that every single day.
