Today's post is a poignant reminder of the fragility of life. Way back in January, I was sharing with you projects I made for my cousin's wedding. It was such a joyous occasion - a story of love between a couple and the merging of two families.
In late February, my cousin's mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. She was responding well to treatment but deteriorated rapidly following an infection late last month. It was hard watching my fave uncle lose his wife of 26 years.
It took me a while to get started on scrapping these happy photos. It seemed wrong to scrap celebratory photos when we were all in mourning. But it's important that my uncle and his two girls remember my aunt when she was truly happy and radiant - the wedding day of her first-born - rather than her last days being ravaged by this insidious disease.
Loss is hard. Savour each and every moment you have with your loved ones, my friends.
