Haven’t Posted In A While

Good things have happened, but it’s the bad things that make them seem inconsequential.  There was a horrific hit-and-run by my house on Friday night and all I knew about it was that it rerouted traffic while I was trying to get to work on Saturday morning.    I watched the news Saturday night and found out two women were killed when they were side-swiped by an intoxicated driver (one was trying to assist the passenger in the car).  On Sunday I found out that the Good Samaritan was an acquaintance of mine.  She taught my boot camp class last spring and I was facebook friends with her.  We were not at all close, but it really made the accident more real to me.  She was my age (30), had a husband and 4 kids, and was just a beautiful person.  I’ve been questioning a lot of things right now and posting just hasn’t been at the top of my list.

  7. It hard to understand how I woke up this morning and worried about getting my miles run while people half way around the world were sending texts and calling from under rubble, praying to be rescued in time. You were trying to get to work when two lives ended. It is very hard to understand how life just goes on. I think that is where faith comes in to remind us that there will be a day when we do understand the whys and hows. Won't that be a great day?!
