in an instant.

I've been out of Savannah one day.

Back when I was in college, I had an awesome job at a huge retailer. What was odd about this store, was that it felt more like "family" than a job. My associates were amazing, my bosses rocked, and our store manager was awesome. I had a blast.

I worked there for three years, until I got married and moved to SC to be with Mr. Perfect.

Today I found out that my former store manager was killed on his way to work.

There's a lot of things that have happened recently, and oddly enough they involved this man, but today is not a day to dwell on those issues.

Today is a day that two teenage girls lost their father. A day that a wife lost her partner and best friend. That an older couple lost their son.

Today is just a sad day.

It honestly saddens me anytime that I hear of this sort of tragedy. I believe this man was a good man. Today is a day that a good man left behind his family.

So today is a day that I kiss and hug on my daughter more than she would like. Today is a day that I thank God for this time with my husband.

Because we are not promised tomorrow. It can be gone in an instant.
