While I have been away I have gotten two doses of very sad news. One is that my best friend’s mom lost her battle with cancer and passed away. Today, I am missing her funeral which saddens me terribly. The other is that a friend of mine from church who was a regular reader and commenter on this blog also passed away a few days ago…unexpectedly and in her sleep. Both were amazing women from whom I have learned a great deal. Both died way too young…..

May they rest in peace.
