Flying Lessons

Lesson 31:
Life is fragile.  Life is Precious.  Life is unpredictable.  Life is beautiful.
A wonderful woman whom I love and admire was killed in a car accident last night.  She has had a great influence on my life for 15+ years.  This has given me pause.  I am blessed in my life to know many great women (many of whom I am releated to) and to have them influence my life for good.  If you will excuse me now I need to get to work on being more like them and less like my grouchy old self.
Sailing on,


  1. Life is so short and so precious and so unpredictable.

    Thinking of you. Losing a loved one is difficult.

  2. So sorry Emily ... hug all those you love and let them know - each day is a gift and precious. We are praying for you and yours, and your friends family.

  3. Janie was amazing, wasn't she? I look back on every interaction I had with her and remember that I came away nourished, encouraged. I think she did that for all of us. What an example she was!
