Another friend gone too soon.


I've been dealt a harsh dose of perspective this week. Wendy and I attended the same church for awhile and volunteered at the same organization. My age, married with a 9 year old and a 5 year old, she just passed away of acute kidney failure.

I may be dealing with systemic disease that's leading to chronic organ failure, but here I am two states from home, slow-dancing in the living room with my 6 month old niece singing "You Are My Sunshine", and Wendy just said goodbye to her husband and children.

There is absolutely nothing fair about that.
