I've been doing a lot of thinking about friendship since I learned of the death of Margie and Bruce. I never had the opportunity to meet them in person but I felt like I knew them through their blog and that we were friends.
For those of you who don't follow their blog, they were taking a walk outside their RV park in Pismo Beach and were hit by a car driven by a 19 year old kid who was trying to "harm himself" according to the news report.
Such a senseless loss but it does makes one stop and gives thanks for the dear friends we do have and for the time we get to spend with them, whether in person or just as blogging friends. Each day is a gift that we are given by a loving Father in Heaven and I know that sometimes I take this gift and the gift of friendship for granted.
Tragedies like this make me realize just how fragile our time here on earth truly is. I want each of you who follow my blog to know how much I do appreciate you and value your comments and friendship.
My love and prayers go out to Bruce and Margie's family and friends. To all of you, thank you for sharing my life with me.
