Coping with Loss

I lost a dear friend over the weekend. It was very unexpected and there was nothing anyone could have done to stop it. This was a relationship I had developed over the past two or three years and it was very important to me. When the accident happened, my first reaction was disbelief. Then as the reality of the situation sunk in, I began to question God on why He would allow this to happen. He didn't answer. But I know we live in a fallen world and that means decay and destruction are part of the process.

But it doesn't make the death of my Chi hair straightener any easier to bear. It was a rough weekend.

my sister would share your sentiments about the Chi. It's near and dear to her heart.

but who needs the Chi when you have the convertible? :) Wind-blown is the best!
