Don't forget the Friday Night Sew In!
As I sit at my sewing room window I reflect on some of the happenings of this crazy week and count my many blessings. My husband and I went to a big farming banquet Monday night. We both were looking forward to seeing friends and enjoying a wonderful dinner that the local grain elevator puts on every year. The turn of events that happened that night has changed me forever.
The evening started out with great conversation and pleasant surprises. A gentleman, Dave, and his wife sat down beside us. We introduced ourselves and the conversation turned over to where we farm and who we know. Dave figure out who I was and he knew my aunts, uncles, parents, and one of my sisters.
One minute he was with us--the next he wasn't.
Dave had a sudden heart attack at age 67 right in front of us and later died.
The rest of the night was a blur and we were both pretty shook up.
Life's short and we all need to count our blessings and reflect on what's really important in life--people!
