In one moment
life can change. A dear friend is in the hospital with less than a slim chance at recovery. Just a day ago, we were all four planning our next trip together, a dinner here at our house, a trolley ride and in one moment everything changes.
Before we got the sad news yesterday, E had asked me to take some pictures of our garden. We had two very bad freezes this past winter and we lost a few plants but yesterday morning, I took these. In one moment, life changes. Perhaps the lesson is to appreciate each day, each moment and each bloom. Or perhaps there is no lesson at all, just sadness and a heavy heart for our friend, his wife and family and anyone who know him.
