Man, am I happy to see this week coming to a close. It was just a heavy week. Nothing terrible happened to me but I just felt like this week was filled with sad news and a lot of reflecting.
When I posted about my bad day on Monday I forgot the saddest part – I came into the office to learn that one of my coworkers, a 27 yr old girl called out that morning because her husband had died in his sleep. They were together for 11 years, he was only 31. Not only did my heart break for her but it was a reminder of how suddenly people can exit our life.
And it was a tough week in Hollywood as well with Ed McMann, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson all passing. I’m watching MTV right now and they are doing a tribute to MJ and its breaking my heart. It makes me sad that the last ten years of his life he has been so greatly scrutinized by the public but now that he is gone, the world is showing there love for him – except that is not what he got to see before he left us. He will always be one of the greatest pop icons of all time. I think that when its all said and done people will remember him for being a great artist rather than all the controversy that surrounded him and that’s how it should be.
I was at my friends house on Monday night and she wanted to watch the Jon & Kate announcement, which of course was that they are seperating. Which led to marriage and divorce being on my mind a lot this week. Specifically, the fact that sometimes parents stay together for the kids (which I believe my Mom did for us) I don’t want to get into the whole thing right now but that has also been on my mind a great deal.
Anyways, if I learned anything this week its to appreciate the people in your life and never take them for granted because things can change and people can be gone in the blink of an eye.
