My heart is heavy today, lovelies.
I found out yesterday a dear old friend's husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 27. They had been perfect for each other, true soul mates, married three years and together since college.
I grew up with her husband. We rode the same school bus from kindergarden on. We were in every.single.class together from 5-8th grade, and most of our high school career we were in the same room. She was there too- they had known each other since the first day of fifth grade.
They had a story that to those of us on the outside, seemed to be the stuff you only see in fairy tales. He was her perfect match and perfect opposite all in the same person, and all you had to do was see a photo of them together to realize how much he adored her.
And now, just like that, hes gone.
Sometimes life just isn't fair, and today is one of those days.
It makes me think of my own husband, and what I would do if he suddenly was not here anymore. I cant even bare that thought, and I know most of you feel the same way about your own husbands/wives. Its truly a tragic situation, one that no one should ever have to go through. Especially not her. She is one of the kindest, smartest, most humble, hardworking, creative, most absolutely wonderful people I have ever had the chance to meet. I know that God has a plan, and there is a reason for everything- and while I do believe that in my heart, right now it just doesn't seem like there could be any rhyme or reason for this. All I can do is keep her in my thoughts and prayers, and keep both families in my thoughts as they struggle through this difficult time. Hopefully this tragedy makes us all realize how important the people in our lives really are, and teaches us to live each moment as if it could be our last.
As for him... Rest in Peace dear friend. The world has lost a great one, and you will be missed by many. I'm so glad I had the privilege to know you.
