My cousin's wife, Peggy, passed away from breast cancer.
There was a horrible train accident in L.A. on Friday night. A Metrolink commuter train hit a freight train head on. It was horrific. We watched in all night long. So far there are at least 30 people dead.
After church on Sunday, I ran into one of my really good friends from high school who I haven't seen in 20 years, Marty. She told me her husband Johnny (my first boyfriend ever) was working in the parking lot. So after visiting with her I went and found Johnny. The look on his face when he realized it was me was priceless. I am sooooooo happy I got to see them and am looking forward to seeing them more.

Some of the best stuff in life happens when you slow down. But don't look at me, I'm always busy.
