I had all my problems put into perspective today.
One of Rhians friends died suddenly today, she was just 8 years old. It's so sad and I can't even begin to contemplate what her family are going through.
Rhian is very sad, Kira is good friends with this girls younger sister and was very sad for her although didn't really know how to express this. Katie was friends with the young girls Mum and is extremely upset that one of her friends is having to deal with something no parent should ever have to deal with.
What do you say to them? There's nothing you can do except be there and try and help. There's nothing you can say that doesn't sound hollow and meaningless and you can't help but say silent thanks for your own family's health and safety.
It just highlights that there's no point dwelling on the future and worrying about it, you have to live for the here and now because it might all be gone tomorrow.
It put's my worries and thoughts to shame really. What right do I have getting worked up about stupid little things when someones daughter just suddenly dies. I have no right to feel sad or depressed when other people have to deal with the death of a child.
