Day 3.012: Sorrow and bravery


We learned yesterday that one of the girls' school friends lost her Dad. He died very suddenly after having a heart attack at work. She was in school today and talking to her classmates (including Exile #4) about what had happened. The teachers have given space for that and for the others to respond and react. Based on the email we received, it has been handled fantastically by the school. Our thoughts and prayers are with the two wonderful little girls and their Mom as they try to come to terms and rebuild their life.

Not for the first time recently, I am reflecting on the fragility of life.  Four friends or close acquaintances have died in the last seven months - the oldest of them was 45.  Shocking one and all.
