I was on my way to my exercise class, "Boot Camp", at 5:15 (central) this morning. I saw the prettiest sunrise, so I stopped to take a photo.
I see beautiful skies often, yet I usually neglect to stop and take the time to capture the moment. Usually I am in too much of a hurry to stop. Life goes so fast, especially with two children in tow. I was not sure why at this moment, I decided to capture the beauty.
After class, I received a phone call from my sister. At about the same time that I stopped my car on the side of the road to take this photo, my cousin was struck and killed by a car. She was on her routine morning walk with a friend, safely up on the sidewalk when a car came up onto the sidewalk, taking something that did not belong to him...a life. He took the life of a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, a cousin, a friend.
I can recall many times seeing her on her walk when I lived in Rhode Island years ago. She would be taking her long strides, as I made my daily rush to work, having allowed barely enough time for breakfast, never mind exercise. I respected her dedication.
I just wanted to share this morning's photo...
Please send your love and prayers to her family...
