Today I am sad.
While trying to make a doctor’s appointment for my eldest, G, who was stung by something nasty on the soccer field yesterday and is dealing with a very swollen hand, I received news that a dear family friend had passed away.
It wasn’t unexpected. It’s almost a blessing because he is no longer suffering. But it is still difficult to hear and deal with.
He was one of the kindest, good hearted (is that even a word) men I’ve had in my life.
That, along with G and her swollen hand, are on my mind today, making it difficult for me to be productive at work.
It would be easier if the things I were trying to accomplish would actually work the right way for me.
But, alas, they won’t.
So, I will continue with my difficult day and hug my girls when I get home tonight.
