I promise you, I am not one to get easily stressed out (and even more so, to admit it), but here it is: I AM STRESSED OUT! Ugh, I am so ready to find a place to live and get out of this situation and be on my own and happy! April has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. I keep telling myself that it will all work itself out, but at 10:07pm on the 27th, there’s nothing I can do about any of it!
Anyway, on to other more important things (than having a place to live)….the world lost a wonderful person the other night. One of my dear friends from college died just the other night, the same age as me. He had had a heart transplant while we were in college, and apparently was having difficulty breathing. The doctors thought maybe his body was rejecting the donor heart (after several years), and were running tests. In the midst of all of this, I guess his heart just gave out. I was informed of all of this in school, while teaching fifth grade, and about broke down in tears. He was one of the kindest, most incredible people I know, always cheerful and positive. My college roommates and I spent a good deal of time with him and he has actually just messaged us a few weeks ago about how much he missed us and what great times he had with us. It goes to show how undeniably short life can be and how things can happen to change so many lives so quickly. The outpour of support and love on his facebook wall was almost overwhelming…it was clear that he touched a lot of lives. My prayers are definitely going out to his family at this time, for not only did they lose Kurt, but they also lost his brother in a car accident a few years ago. I can only imagine and pray that God has big plans for this family and will give them the strength to get through this together. I am sure that He is using Kurt in his own special way.
My brain is hurting, so I am off…
