I came to this blog via the blog of the darling Jackie, who lost her husband in March this year. They share something that neither of them would have ever wanted to think about and probably never did - they both lost their partners on the same day from the same thing. Matt's wife Liz gave birth one day and died the next. Jackie's husband was fine one day and then died the next.
Sometimes I forget how perfect my life is. Sometimes I forget that I should inhale every minute with the people I love. Sometimes I forget that it doesn't matter if the house is mess. Sometimes I forget that most of it doesn't matter. I need to remember that my family is the only thing that really matters.
