Sad Day for 5ks & Coffee Beans

Hello again friends.

Today was a thoughtful day to say the least. Most of it was spent at work aside from a couple of hours this afternoon (story to follow). On the bright side, tomorrow is a new day with a new post and happier news. Today, however was a very sad day indeed. I spent my afternoon at a memorial service for a little boy. A little boy who was 100% boy and 100% love. He loved playing hide and seek and playing outside and digging for rocks and playing games with his brother. He was goofy and fun and loving. Unfortunately, a terrible accident cut his life many, many, many, many years short. I babysat for him many times and rocked him to sleep, read him stories, watched movies with him, played games with him and drew pictures for him. Countless times, I ushered him back to bed when the sneaky little boy climbed out of his crib in the middle of the night only to sit angelically in the corner of his room and play peacefully with his toy instruments. He was a wonderfully fun little boy with a winsome smile. He loved firetrucks, footballs and ketchup. Thinking of his lovely family makes me endlessly sad and I know their lives will never, ever be the same, but I’ll think of him everyday and he will certainly be missed.

By the time I finally made it back home tonight, I wasn’t much in to doing anything I had planned so unfortunately, there isn’t much else to update you on for today! Please do come back tomorrow for your conventional 5ks and Coffee Beans post. So sorry for the super downer post, but ignoring it just wouldn’t be right.

We will talk again tomorrow. Thanks for reading!

  1. Sorry for your loss :(. The part that made me smile was when you said he would sneak out of his crib and play with his toys :).
