I’ve always been someone who is affected by tragic news to her core. But now, as a mom and a wife, it just hits differently.

Earlier today, I learned about a mom in her late 30s from the Atlanta area who passed away recently, and I can’t stop thinking about her, her husband, and her baby. There really are no words or thoughts that do this kind of loss any justice. It’s tragic and devastating. And so freaking unfair.

The somewhat generic thought I keep coming back to is this…

Life is so very unpreditable.

You can do all the right things. You can eat well and exercise. You can mediate and think good thoughts. You dan be kind and giving. You can be a fun person. An amazing mom. A loving wife. The bestest friend.

But alas life is unpredictable…you just never know what’s going to happen.

I pray that this woman’s friends and family find strength during this time, and that the people she was closest to fill her son’s world with stories about his mama. I hope her soul is at peace.

And for those of us who have been given the gift of more time, I hope we use it wisely. I hope we take care of ourselves. I hope we love our people hard. I hope we don’t leave words or hugs on the table. I hope we never take a single breath for granted. I hope we find ways to let go and just be. I hope we take our big beautiful precious lives and live them to the absolute fullest.


…life is so very unpredictable.

Sending each and every one of you an abundance of love.
