I'm not my usual fun self


I'm bugging out a bit. I like to use my blog as a place to stay positive about things that are going on in my life, but sometimes things in life happen, and it's unavoidable that you're going to be sad.

Last week, a friend of mine had a heart attack, he's the husband of one of my friends of over 25 years. He's on the mend, but it was a shocker, a wake up call as to what stage of life we're heading into, one that I hoped wouldn't happen for years, if ever.

Then, I found out this morning, Mike, a friend from high school, a husband and father of three, died of a heart attack. I sat in front of his facebook page, wanting to write something, but didn't know what to say. I keep thinking of him in the back seat of our Drivers Ed car, making fun of my driving.

What is really upsetting to me, is today is the 15th Anniversary of the death of my friend Anna. She was one of my first great friends, the person I did my nails with, listened to Madonna with, shared my first beer with. She and Mike used to date, and in a strange twist of fate, he died on the same day, many years later.

I'm sure they're sitting together in Heaven.

My heart goes out to you, Molly. Sometimes, the unexpectedness of news like this packs a wallop.

I learned one afternoon that a friend had died in an accident, and it seemed very fitting that as I drove home from work I was behind a car with the license plate: BGR8FL

Alyssa said...

Molly, my sympathy to you...I wish there were more appropriate words. That's a shocker when someone so young dies. It just doesn't seem fair.

I am SO sorry! I lost a very close friend about eight months ago in a car accident--It is such a hard thing! Wishing comfort to you this week!

Thinking of you, it is so hard to lose people and to realize as we get older we will have to deal with it more and more frequently.

I lost one of my best friends in 2005, two months before my daughter was born. She was only 34. I hate that some people can't live out a long fulfilled life. :(
