Woke up to sad,sad news :(

Today is my one day off of the week.

After leisurely sleeping in to 7:30 am (that’s sleeping in for me now,,wow I’m getting old).

I made my first cup of tea, and of course checked my facebook. The first post I saw was from a good friend that I went to college with a few years ago. She posted that she had lost her daughter last night.

At first I was oh lord, what has this kid gotten herself into now. But as I continued to read the post I realized omg, she really has lost her daughter OMG!

Apparently her 18 year old first born was walking home from a late class at her University in Ottawa and got hit by a SUV and died instantly.

Although I have only known my friend for a few years, I do know that her children are her world to her and I know that she was so very close to her daughter they did so many things together, marathon runs, went to the best concerts and attended Zombie walks during Halloween.

I was just talking to my friend a few weeks ago and she was worried about her daughter, she was in her first year of University and spreading her wings as a single young woman that had finally left the nest. As all kids do she was experiencing different things for the first time, hanging out with different people and making some questionable decisions. She was very opinionated and said what was on her mind  but she wasn’t a bad kid, she always had a big smile on her face and had a great big caring heart.

Continue to smile pretty girl and continue to spread your beautiful angel wings and look over your loving mother and family.
