Oh Sun Shiny Day

Sunshine, Good people, and a Great Charity....put those three things together and you will have a day like we had Sunday for Timber's Lupus Walk. It was a fantastic day. The music was just fabulous and there was a really great showing of people who came out to support the event. I don't have hard numbers yet but there were around 200 to 250 that came and went throughout the event. It was just a beautiful sight.
Of course I was as emotional as ever during the balloon launch when I was talking to Taylor on the  face time app on my brothers IPhone. That way she got to see it and be a part of it even though she couldn't be there in person. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful person and a beautiful cause. Did I tell you how beautiful it was? Yeah...thought so. Here are a few pics of the day that I stole from my facebook friends. I was to busy hugging people to take any pics.  :) by the way... I enjoyed that alot too.

The News

Well, today was a day that I would easily trade in for a new one. You know those days don't you? Like the day when you hear news that one of your coworkers that you have worked with for 16 years got hit by a van while he was on his motorcycle driving home from work. And if that wasn't bad enough...try having his son be the one to tell you this news....and to top it all off...have him tell you all this while he is at the scene of the accident while his dads body lays motionless in the middle of the road and the police wont let him near it because they are doing their investigation. UGHHHHH.

I would gladly trade this day in.

If you have ever had a loved one pass away tragically or unexpectedly....and you are told of the passing....I mean....there is just no other worst feeling in the world. None. You see...Its that first few seconds... I cant even begin to describe that feeling. Its beyond words. Because its like no other feeling you have ever felt. For me, having once felt that feeling....I now cry  every time when I see or hear others getting that kind of can be on TV even...and I still cry. It just breaks my heart and I immediately re-live it when I received the news of Timberly.
I know what my coworkers son is dealing with and I know what his wife is dealing with...and there is nothing anyone can do to take the pain away.


OK...I just needed to vent and scream a bit. Thanks for listening.
