It is with great sadness that I tell you all that I was notified this morning by my mom that my sister had passed away unexpectedly last night. As I work through the grief and support my family, I wanted to also share this with my blogger/teacher friends. I will be taking some time off of work and therefore will be away from my blog for a bit. In times like these, I am grateful for my life and the family and friends that I have. It forces me to take a step back and realize that life is so precious and sometimes unfortunate things happen. I trust that God has taken my sister to a better place where she no longer hurts and feels the pain of our physical world. I am so appreciative of the love and support I've received. I look forward to moving past this difficult time. Many blessings-

  8. Kelly, I am so deeply sorry, there are almost no words. While God has taken her to the best place of all, her family and friends are left to life without her. I am praying for strength and peace.
