Things to think about for Tuesday

My heart is heavy for a local family who's son died this weekend after getting lost on a cross-country ski outing. The community outpouring is touching and heartfelt; there are many close to lift them up during this unspeakably rough time. The loss feels so close (he was 13) for a youth I hadn't seen in probably three years--Seth and he played soccer together back in the day. But he was a sweet boy with a ready smile and a great kick. Such a tragedy; a young life cut short, too soon.

Today I am especially conscious of each moment, each day. And especially aware of the fragility of life. And wanting to make sure those around me know that they are loved and appreciated, treasured.
