A very dear friend of mine lost her mum to cancer a few days ago. I just found out today. And a few weeks ago my mum lost one of her cousins. He was elderly and unwell. And then the most tragic of all was an accident taking away a young person who I did not know directly but who was very dear to a whole family that is dear to me.
With each of the previous two, my uncle and the young man with his whole life yet to be lived ahead of him, I found myself reflecting on how fickle life is. Today's news has piled atop these and the weight of sadness has broken me today.
I have no words.
