The work week has winded down and I am absolutely spent. It has been a long week. I have had court twice and worked in another office in another town on one day.

I know I have said this before on my blog, but always remember your family and cherish them while you can. My coworker called on Sunday night. She and her family had been celebrating some birthdays with her husband's family that day. About 20 minutes after they returned home, they got a call that her husband's father was being rushed to the hospital. Her youngest daughter, who is 3, and her cousin, who is 6, were with him when he fell. They thought he was playing "dinosaur." To make a long story short, he never regained consciousness and on Tuesday evening he passed away. He was only 55 years old. A positive thing about this is that the family had had a great day of being together and celebrating. She also said he loved his granddaughters dearly, so playing with two of them is the last thing he did. The family has some comfort in those things. His service is tomorrow. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Lisa, I thought about you several times today thinking I had not heard from you in awhile and hoping you were OK. Looking at the date on your post makes me realize how far behind I am with things, this was a week ago, ouch. I am sorry to hear about your coworkers dad. 55 is a little close for comfort, I am so sorry for their loss. Hope to see you soon.
