Life's too Short
I am so sad to write that our friend, Ryan Rich, died on Friday the 4th. He was a resident at Valley with Kevin. I have been so uneasy since I found out that he passed. I don't know what it is. I have been thinking about it a lot and maybe it is because he was young and had so much to look forward to or maybe it is because he is leaving behind a beautiful daughter. Maybe it's because his live was much like Kevin's. Working for the same goals. Saving lives. Supporting your small family. When your husband is a doctor, you don't think that he might not come home. He is out there saving people and then he comes home. It makes me think a lot about my own life. The arguing is not worth it. You just don't know what the day is going to bring. So for my New Years Resolution........ I am going to be a better Wife, Mother, Friend, Sister and Sister-N-Law, Aunt, Daughter. I tend to get a little crazy when it comes to the little stuff, like wanting the house spotless, but I decided that I can't let those little things get in the way and make my family miserable. Someone once told me, "Love, Laugh, and Kiss Everyday. Never go to bed mad at each other. Life is short and you are never promised tomorrow". I just want my family to be happy and know I love them. Maybe in the grand scheme of things this tragedy is a blessing to me because I am able to step back and evaluate the important things in my life, the things I treasure the most. Ryan was a good guy and was going to be a great doctor I am sure.
