Life is too short

Last night I let the kids stay up late and as I was putting them to bed husband and I received a phone call that no one ever wants to get.  The daughter of some friends of ours died last night.  She was twenty years old and we both literally watched her grow up.  I cannot even begin to describe how horrified I am.  Husband works for her family, her mom is the one that gave all my daughters their first haircut, and we watched her as a little girl dance at our wedding.  I am absolutely devastated and I know that what I am feeling right now is not a drop in the bucket to what her family must be going through.  I was up all night crying just thinking about how unfair it is.  Sophie crawled into my bed and I just sat there and stared at her in all her sweetness and as she snuggled up to her daddy I went into Kylie and Audrey's room and lay down next to them.  Kylie immediately scooted over next to me and put her hands in my hair, something that she used to do as a baby to get herself to sleep.  I think I have hugged and kissed them a million times already and I'm sure I'll do it a million times more.

So sorry to hear about her, that is so young!
I came across a story the other day about a baby with cancer that didnt make it and it really scared me. I think i kissed and hugged my little one about a million times too.
