The Fragility of Life

My wife just called me to let me know the wife of one of her coworkers died last night. It was very sudden, and she was in her mid- to late 40’s. It is really hard to believe, to be honest.

One cannot help but think about how fragile life is, how sudden it can stop. It makes you appreciate even the crummy job a little more, if only because you cannot wait to get out to go and hug your own spouse, tell them you love them, remember what life is truly about.

May she rest in peace, and may he and his family find the peace and consolation they so need at this moment of grief.
