Sometimes the little things don't matter

It was my intention to come home tonight and write up a post about my card swap cards for this month. It would have been a post about how I couldn't think of any half decent ideas for the theme (men are always really hard to make cards for), and then about how the theme that I had chosen didn't really come together. Then there was the part about how hard it is to stamp on vellum and just generally how the card was really hard work.

That post will probably still happen in the next few days, but to be honest, this minor issue has been put into a more realistic perspective today. This morning one of my work colleagues was killed in a motorcycle accident. He was someone who I dealt with regularly in the course of my role, and I am, well, I guess shell shocked is the best description I can give. There will be many more people who were closer to him, friends, family, wife and daughters who will be feeling this sudden loss so much more than I can even begin to fathom.

Rest peacefully my friend.

  9. I'm sorry to hear about this Marg. I can imagine you would be shell shocked. Its hard to think of how things can change unexpectedly in our lives. We get so involved in our routines that we hardly take time to breath let alone appreciate the ones we have in our lives.

    I hope that you begin to grieve and my thoughts are with you and his family.

  13. I'm so sorry, Marg. It is such a shock when someone we work with, someone probably around our age, suddenly passes away. We lost a co-worker earlier this year to cancer, and she was only two years older than I was. I don't think any of us are really over - I should say through - her loss, but even worse was the family, the young children, she left behind. It does put things into perspective, doesn't it?
