Thinking of Lauren

When I casually scanned my news feed on Monday morning before braving the office I was mentally prepping for my Monday and not at all prepared to learn of a blogger friend's tragic loss of a family member over the weekend. 

It's just shy of a year now that Lauren and I had the chance to connect in Texas and I follow her blog daily. I was was incredibly sad for Lauren and admire her ability to use her writing (while even injecting a bit of humor to boot) as a means of catharsis.

Conversely, I was happy to jet off Monday evening to Arkansas and take a few days off from blogging.  I couldn't think of anything to write.

I'm thankful that Tracy from Fly On Over has set up something that lets us, in the blogosphere and beyond, channel our support. 

I appreciate and admire that Lauren is sharing her journey with us and my thoughts are with her in this difficult time.
