One week later.....

.....and still no cooking.

I've grieved my friend Brad for exactly one week -- although I don't think the actual 'grieving' began until last Tuesday or so. Monday was strictly shock I think.

So, I've cried buckets for the past six days, but I think that for Carrie's sake I need to move past the sobbing, grieving friend and on to the rock hard, supportive friend she's going to need...easier said than done I guess. I've had moments today where I've broken down and lost it, but I'm trying to keep it together.

I thought I would share this nice article about Brad. The picture is one my husband took on the beach in Long Boat Key when we were all on Spring Break together back in March. You'll agree, they're a beautiful family. The one in the middle is my daughter's BFF.

I am planning on making something for dinner tonight, which I think is a good thing. A little normalcy would be welcomed in A Corner of My Kitchen. And thanks, everyone for your nice comments. It's so nice to have Cyberfriends!

I've been thinking of you and your friends. It was a lovely article to read, and he seemed like a real stellar gentleman. I'm sure his wife and daughters are simply devastated. Continue being the kind and loving friend that you are! Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

What a nice article and picture. So sad.....I often think what it would be like to never have a hug from my husband again. Puts a lump in my throat. I wish your friend much support and love from everyone around her.

I'm going to read the article after I comment, but I just wanted to tell you to hang in there. Life is so fragile, it's hard not to be frightened all the time. We all just have to keep moving forward.
