Birth, Death and Everything In Between

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.
