Life and Death

I am feeling a bit of the circle of life this week.

A very good friend lost his battle with brain cancer this week. He was only 37.
We also received some not so good news about another member of our friend family who has been missing since November. It is too long of a story to get into, but needless to say it looks like perhaps some foul play is involved in his disappearance.

But even as we loose these friends we are expecting to bring a new life into the world shortly. Sometimes it doesn't make any sense to me.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friends *hugs* It always seems a bit harder to deal with the "bad" while having the "good" as well.

Another northwest blogger here...Congratulations on your pregnancy! That's so exciting. It is an odd dichotomy ...having joy tempered by "life."

Have a fantastic week!
