Feeling a bit down
We had Colby's party on the weekend and I will post about that and have pictures soon. I received some very disturbing news yesterday that a woman that I worked with had suddenly passed away on Saturday. She was only 32 and died from what I understand was a heart attack. She was not well on Thursday and Friday, stayed in hospital for those days, was released (again I believe) on Saturday, and while going out with her signficant other for supper on Saturday, collapsed. I'm still getting my head around the fact that this woman I worked with everyday, sat next to, is now gone. Just like that. Although she had no children, she had a nephew that she adored and talked about constantly. This, so soon after watching the Cameron family and their loss, has really "shook my foundation" so to speak. Death is not something that I spend a lot of time thinking about, but when 2 people you know are suddenly gone, you can't really help it. I feel I have been very fortunate in my life, to have met my soul mate very early in life and to have 2 amazing children. I look at other people I know, some I only know through blogs that I read, and some I know very closely, who are my age but are in different spots in their lives, still looking for that "someone special". I would love nothing more than to see everyone I know as happy as I am, to have someone to share their lives with. I even find myself thinking when I hear someone say " I'm so tired of being single, I just wish I could find the right guy", I really have to resist the urge to say "well, I have 2 husbands, would you like one?!" and have actually said this more times than I should. I just really want the people in my life to be happy, to enjoy being with someone and being married or together as much as I do, and if I can do that without being the person who says "Hea, I know someone who would be perfect for you, let me hook you up." I just can't help but think "what if there was no tomorrow?" What if someone close to me was suddenly just not there anymore? But, thinking about the "what ifs" will only drive you crazy. So, with all that being said, I can't help but sit here with my cup of coffee, smile and say to anyone interested "So, wanna hear about my other husband?"
