First off, as I've mentioned, my friend flies in tonight and will spend an extended weekend with me. I'm excited about it and I have fingers crossed he'll have a good time.
Second, we were informed this morning at work that a coworker passed away last night. She had been battling cancer for the third time. Her husband thinks her body just could not take any more of the treatment and gave up. She was a wonderful woman, literally loved by every colleague of the company. She was smart, beautiful, insightful, and fun. Pink is her signature color! I will miss her tremendously because she believed in me and helped to mentor me when I first joined the department. My prayers go out to her husband, son, daughter, son-in-law, and grandson and her extended family and friends.
So I've had battling emotions today. I don't know whether to laugh or to cry. I've done a bit of both. If you think about it, please send good vibes. Thanks.
