Thank you all for your kind thoughts and comments on my last post. I wish I had a happier update for us all, but my dear friend’s son passed away September 28th. The injuries he sustained after being hit by a car while riding his bike home from school were simply too traumatic. There are no words for a devastating loss like this.
My friend is one of the most generous and kind-hearted people I’ve ever met. She is establishing a public awareness campaign about driving safely in school zones in loving memory of her son, Team T.O.M. (Take One Minute). Accidents like Tom’s can be avoided if drivers just remember to be vigilant and cautious in school zones.
As for me, I’m doing what I can to help, which never feels like enough. Everything else in my life is taking something of a back seat right now, which I know you totally understand. At some point in the near future, I hope to get back to reading and commenting. I’ve missed you. In the meantime, hug your kids. Treasure them. And please, please, PLEASE drive safely!
