Endings are Sad.

Today, I was going to tell, and show you, how much fun a person, wearing only skivvies, can have walking city streets.

But today that would be wholly inappropriate.

Today, my dear husband’s Papa passed away.

Mallet houses worldwide are feeling the loss of a really remarkable man.

This sad news reminds me that while endings are natural and necessary, I’m not a fan.

I have never felt the loss of a parent or a soul-mate–trying to imagine what that feels like makes my heart drop.

Seeing the person I love, so dearly, grieve is more painful than any loss I can remember.

So on this day, I’d like to wish Papa Mallet a safe journey and tell him he is loved and will be missed.

And with that Ladies and Gents,

Grab someone you love today, like they might not be here tomorrow, because life is fragile
