For the last 24 hours or so I have just been sad. I heard bad news about 2 people I know. Neither are people I am particularly close to, but still it is heartbreaking.

A former colleague of mine committed suicide on Sunday. He was only in his early 30s. He had gone through a divorce in the last year, and had recently lost his job. Apparently he had also just broken up with his girlfriend. But his friends were with him the night before, and nobody had any idea. So sad ....such a waste.

A current colleague of mine who is just the sweetest funniest guy in the world had an operation for a brain tumor yesterday. Looks to be cancer. Unreal. At our recent conference in Florida we had all agreed that he was just the funniest guy. Keeping our fingers crossed.

Sometimes life is just sad.

Both very sad stories. The kind that make you give your kids extra big hugs. Or at least - that's what I do.

Very sad. Sending blog-hugs to you. Hang in there and find a special shining moment today and focus on that...then do the same the next day and the next and the next.
