Not Quilt Related.
I am so sorry that I haven't posted in a couple days.
I've had a rough week so far.
Sunday, a young woman I went to high school with was found dead in a house in a neighboring town.
She was 19 years old.
Way too young to die.
I don't understand it. I'm not sure I want to understand it.
She was beautiful, caring, nice, any man's dream girl.
When I thought about how young she was, I thought how young I am, and how it could happen to anyone.
In our small school community, we thought we were untouchable, nothing like this would happen to one of us. Things like this only happen in the big city.
It wasn't supposed to happen to one of us. We were untouchable, invincible. I suppose that assumption has gone down the drain.
Again, I'm so sorry for not posting. I promise I will get back in the swing of things. Please, keep quilting, keep sewing, keep making beautiful things, and please don't stop reading my blog. I promise I won't get so sappy.
I don't usually get all weepy and religious, but prayers would be greatly appreciated.
Her name was Emily. She will be missed forever.
