Rough Week.

What a week.
One of my best friends, Mika, lost her mother early Monday morning.
She had been battling breast cancer for 19 years.
She was an amazing woman and had impacted SO many peoples lives.
I wish I had gotten to know her better.
My heart aches for my friend and her loss.
I have felt so helpless all week.
Even more so on Tuesday when we got a call from them saying that their puppy had gotten hit by a car and died.
When it rains it pours eh?
Yesterday was Monica's funeral and it was amazing.
The whole thing really made me contemplate myself and how I live my life.
I really enjoyed learning more about her through what her family had to say.
Monica was a dear friend to everyone she met.
She truly did live every day like it was her last.
Something truly amazing to live by!
I don't ever want to take another day for granted again!
I sure do love these people!
You will never be forgotten Monica & Auzzie!

Oh my gosh! That is SOOO sad! I am so sorry to hear that. Oh my gosh, that makes me SO sad. Mika's mom was a beautiful woman. And so sad to lose their doggie too! Oh man, I hope they are doing okay! So sorry!
