Near and dear

Anticipating tomorrow nights event with mixed emotions........Joy for the cause and the people who loved her and the reminder of the deep searing loss of such a close friend. Soul mate if you will! She would have bucked it up and rightly, so shall I. I am blessed to have been invited by Sharon's daugher Olivia who is now 12. Olivia and Christian(8) attend this school and their Mama and my friend Sharon drove them every day (Along with my daughter Anna, 12 who attends a different school now.) I think driving up that drive to the school is almost as hard as anything?! Funny thing grief is~ and after almost 3 years it seems like yesterday. Yes, Life is hard sometimes. But, Life is good.
I'm sure Sharon would agree.

This is so special...Sharon's legacy lives on. I didn't even personally know her...but I feel like I did. Her faith follows her & it is so special that her sweet Olivia invited you.
Blessings~Hope
