My friend Fiona had a baby girl yesterday - 8lbs 13oz!
My friend Jamie's father passed away the day before yesterday - not an old man.
My previous boss from the University of Arkansas also passed away about a week ago - also not an old man.
About three weeks ago, I saw two kids get run over by an SUV. One was around 9 or 10, the other around 15 or 16. They thankfully survived but suffered major injuries.
My husband's wonderful grandmother has been diagnosed with cancer.
I'm having a baby in approximately three weeks.
It's hard to comprehend that death is a part of life. They sound like opposites. But everyone starts with birth and ends with death. Life can be so unbelievably overwhelming.
