Some things are hard to understand.
Several of my friends have posted about this already today, but I just had to take a moment to pay tribute to my friend Kristy, whose life was cut short on her 30th birthday yesterday. She was a really sweet person who was always true to herself and those she loved. She was so full of life! It's hard to believe that she's gone. She has two little boys, each about a year younger than my two boys. Every time I look at my kids today my heart just aches for her, not being able to raise her precious children that she loved so much. Dallin and Luke probably wonder why they are getting so many kisses and hugs from their mom today! It makes me realize how much I take for granted, especially just the peace and happiness that I feel on a daily basis. Her life ended tragically, and it was probably filled with a lot of unhappiness, especially in recent months. How did she deserve that? I know it's nothing that anyone deserves, but to die at the hand of someone you love just doesn't make any sense to me. It makes me realize how precious each day we have on this earth really is. I'm going to try harder to be a better friend and mother and wife and make every moment count.
