Life Shapers

Today is a Pepsi and candy kind of day. I need those to help me get through. I like to post upbeat posts, but today I'm not feeling upbeat. I haven't slept a full night in over a week because someone in my family is always waking me up. Last night it was my 3 year old who decided he was going to yell in his room because he had insomnia until 1 a.m. I've also got some sinus thing going on which is dragging me down and I'm wiped out. I don't want to be grouchy.

This morning I got some sad news. A friend of our family, a beautiful person named Vicki lost her battle with cancer and went to be with the Lord. We've known this was coming for some times, but my heart breaks for her family. She leaves behind a husband, daughter and grandson and of course extended family. When we found out she had a limited amount of time, I started thinking back to when I was growing up and the interactions we had with her. What I will also remember about her is that she was a good mother, wife, and friend. She had a kind spirit and was such a sweet person.

When I was growing up, she was a woman that was in my life besides my own mother, that was a good example. I titled my post today "life shapers" because in her own way, she was a life shaper. Just by living her life she shaped the lives of those around her. She leaves behind a wonderful legacy with her family and wonderful memories for those who were blessed enough to know her. I hope that one day someone would say the same about me.

I hope you are having a good day in your neck of the woods.
