All weekend long it was grey and dull and the skies remained open while the rain fell steadily. It definitely had us finding things to do inside our homes. It also represented the general mood of our small community of the past week.
The school student body suffered yet another tragedy. An 8th grade student lost his life last Monday during surgery. His death was totally unexpected and the kids have taken it pretty hard. Actually the whole community has. He left behind a mother who is a widow. I can’t imagine what she must be going through, having buried her husband when her son was only 1 and now she has to lay her son to rest too.
It’s during such tragedy’s like this that I’m reminded how fragile life truly is, and how I just don’t know if we can have tomorrow…….together.
It’s the last week of school before we have a much welcomed break. it will only be a week but I think it will do us all some good.
