I can't find the words...

I am not sure of what to write, what to say. The last 24 hours has been very confusing and overwhelming. It just doesn't feel right to share any cute anecdotes, WiP progress or any trivial (but beautiful) crafty supply pictures... It is just not the right time.

A good friend of mine suffered a heart attack Monday morning in front of his wife and two young children. I don't really want to go into details but he was saved after 27 minutes of cardiac arrest... Today he amazingly has woken up briefly. We can see hope. But still we don't know in what state he is. We receive updates through an email thread regularly, phone calls have been made to near and far. We are such a large group of good old friends, it is amazing how this terrible terrible tragedy brings us all together no matter where we are in the world, no matter how many years have passed by since we met last... We are like a big family, praying, talking, supporting each other the best we can.

Suddenly all the everyday whines, complaints, analysis and questioning seem completely out of order. See what you have and stop focusing on what you don't have. What do you want to do or say today if tomorrow isn't there? I am a very lucky woman. I have lots of love in my life. Every moment is precious... This is so scary...

My thoughts are with my friend and his family every minute. I can't really focus on anything right now. So today I am not sharing anything colourful, pretty or inspiring... Or maybe that is just what I am doing by sharing this with you. I don't know. I am tired. I think I will go to bed. Tomorrow is another day. Carpe diem.
