I'm going to take about a week off around here.
In a sad, unexpected turn of events, I lost my 49 year old aunt Friday. Several days later, my uncle's wife passed away. I'm rarely at a loss for words about anything, but this time I am.
I'm planning to take my first ever out of town trip without the kids to attend the funeral. Although I won't be gone long, I'm a little apprehensive about it.
I know it's so cliche to say, but seriously, pick up the phone, write that letter, knock on that door. Make sure folks know how much you love them. There may not be a later.
I'll be back again next week, with the usual stuff. Until then, hug your babies, and savor the moments, even the rough ones. They're all a blessing...
