The Posts I Didn't Write

I have started to write many posts this week.

The first one was about the great weekend I had, just Martha and me, alone for the whole weekend. It was going to be a love story about transitions and cleaning out the garage.

Then there was the one about some medical decisions I have to make and how difficult it can be when the decisions affect others in your life.

That got sidetracked when therapy hit a raw nerve and I started to write a rant on how much therapy hurts.

But they all became meaningless when I got a call Monday night telling me that a close friend had died in a car accident. Although it wasn’t an accident. She was killed by a drunk driver. And I wanted to write an angry post about the impact of DWI and how many families I know that have been torn apart by this senseless, selfish act.

But I have just returned from a funeral and sitting Shiva for a friend. A single mom with two beautiful daughters. And I am having trouble finding any words for anything.


  1. :-o

    OMG I am so. so. so. sorry.

    For all involved.

    Big hugs to all of you. :'(

  2. Oh no. Oh, what a tragedy. I am so sorry.

    It does put everything else into perspective.

    Hugs and prayers to all of you.


  3. Prayers are being said for your friend and her family. And for all the issues you are dealing with.

  4. There's absolutely no way to wrap your head around this. My heart goes out to her family and of course to you. I'm really sorry.

  5. Sad. Terrible all is so layered with pain. So many others to walk beside you and yet the loss is a ripping of part of us.

    Thank you for sharing what is so hard to say. Hugs and prayers added to the many others.

  6. oh no no no ...

    I am so sorry.

    strength to you...

  7. I was away last week, and am only now seeing this. I'm so sorry, 8thDay--that is such a horrific thing to have happen. I will pray for your friend and all who love her.
