I had another post written for today but then something happened that made me change my mind.
This is my friend Heather. She is a gorgeous, smart, nurse, yoga teacher, and most of all a mother of 3 children. I heard today that her middle child Regan, 14, was hit by a car last night. His is at John’s Hopkins, opening his eyes, moving his arms and legs, but had to have surgery because unfortunately he has suffered a head injury.
I am still in shock of hearing this news as I was going through my day like normal; taught 2 yoga classes, did some housekeeping work, sent the emails, was getting ready to zumba with my sister, smiling and laughing like any normal day. And once I heard what happened just this kind of could of sadness and worry has just been over my head and filling my thoughts.
I’ve said this before and I know you’ve heard this before but Life is precious. Every day, every moment, every breath, matters and affects what you do and who you want to be.
Heather and I have been through a lot in the past few years; tears, laughter, new jobs, old jobs and breakups, are just a few of the ups and downs of normal life that we have dealt with together. But all of that is behind me because I am thinking nothing but positive thoughts and prayers (and y’all know I am not religious) for her son to recover quickly and 100%. Ugh- it just pains me to think of a poor 14 year old in the hospital, let alone the son of my friend. It’s so sad.
Please take a moment and think of Heather and her son as well as their family and send some good vibes their way. And remember that life is beautiful and that you should cherish every moment of it and all the people in it that mean the world to you.
I love you H.
