I will apologize in advance for this entry. It won't be encouraging, funny or happy in any way at all, so if you don't want to read something sad, save this for another day.
I got a call this morning from my sister. It is unusual for her to even be awake at 7:30 am let alone calling me. She had sad news. One of our cousins is on life support after attempting to commit suicide.
I can't really go into details as I don't really know more than that, but I'm really sad. This is one of my cousins that I was actually pretty close to growing up and our families did a lot of fun things together. I have a lot of really good memories of her which makes this even sadder. I just keep thinking of all those memories and at times I chuckle but it mostly makes me cry. And with each phone call from a friend to offer support I just cry more. I know they mean well but the more I talk about it the more I cry.
I find it really ironic in a cruel way that I just had that entry about my college friend's death and now this...
My prayers are with my cousin & her family (and my family) because that is really all I can do at this point.
