You never know

I guess you just never realize how people affect you until they're gone.

Someone I never met, spoke to, or even emailed passed away today on her way to work. She was in a car crash. I knew her because we were both members of the monthly kit Studio Calico. Her name was Aleida Franklin. And I'll miss her posts. She had a quick sense of humor. And I think she saw it as her job to welcome new members to Studio Calico. It just won't be the same at Studio Calico without her posts.

I'll keep her family in my thoughts as they try to figure out what's next. I just can't image what her children are going through.

And I'll make sure an give my husband an extra hug tonight when he gets home from work. Because you just never know.

Here's a link to her blog.
