Always Kiss Goodbye

I was on Twitter tonight ranting about various topics like my complete failure to get out and run, presidential candidates’ bad sweaters and any other frivolous topic that kept me from getting to some looming work deadlines, when I learned some sad news. A Twitter-community member who I did not know, @ashPEAmama, passed away yesterday at the young age of 20. According to the Twitter community, she had a new baby and was a sweet and active social media participant.

My condolences and graces go to her family and friends.

This is yet another reminder that life can change in an instant. Try not to let the stresses of every day responsibilities take over too much. My husband laughs at me, but I have a “rule” in the house that we must always kiss goodbye. Even if I’m sleeping and he leaves at 4:30 a.m. – like today. You never know when it will be your last.

RIP.
