Bitter Sweet

Yesterday was a very bitter sweet day for me.

The sweet - my baby turned 25! I can't believe that Katie is a quarter of a century. It seems she should be about Mattie May's size, being her silly self and passing out her special love to everyone she would meet.

The bitter - I attended the memorial for my boss's 25 year old son that died over the weekend from a drug overdose. He was such a sweet and loving young man that could just never find his place in life. He will live in our hearts forever.

Happy Birthday to Katie!

Gosh, how sad that must have been to attend a memorial for someone else's child who happens to be the same age as your own. As if the death of a loved one isn't hard enough...

Oh my goodness - what a sad mixing of a day - your beloved daughter and the loss of a young man who was also no doubt loved. Hope your daughter had a wonderful day and starts off a year of being blessed in every way. I always appreciate your comments on my blog - wish we could have shared some of that rain with you.
