It's a hard lesson to learn

My husband has been dealing with some issues over his brother's death. Many of you may or may not remember my brother-in-law was killed in a motorcycle accident last year. He had done everything right that morning. He wore a helmet. He had some protective gear on. He stayed in his lane and didn't drive reckless. Unfortunately, he was still hit head on and was killed instantly by a woman driving a Tahoe and who was running late for a Dr's appointment.  She has finally been arrested and charged. There has been a trial date set and now the waiting begins. 

I'm not going to pretend this year hasn't been one of the hardest years we've ever had. My husband is a strong man, but tragedies like this will push at the boundaries of anyone's strength. I'm proud of him. Together as a unit we've been to work through some stuff and I think we've come out stronger than before. He has horribly hard days. His brother was very young and he wants to vent at the unfairness of it all, but what it's done most of all is make all of us appreciate life. Time goes by very quick. One moment you're kissing your spouse and headed for work, the next you're singing with the angels in Heaven. That's how it is. Now we make sure we don't go a single day without telling each other how much we love and appreciate one another. His brother taught us that. It's been a hard lesson to learn. 

So having said this, I want to let everyone know how much I appreciate you. Thank you for hanging in there with me and for being my friend. *HUGS*
