Life is so short.

Just the other day, I saw this young girl I go to school with. Now today, she is gone. Forever. She was only at the age of 16, living a good life and having fun. Today, that fun all ended. I remember, walking into school seeing her smile. I knew it would be a good day. She always brought this warm feeling to you when you were feeling low. Or if it was a chilly day out, she some how made the air feel warm. My fellow MyLot Friends, I have lost a friend today. A friend who I seldom talked to and never really got to know. It is a shame her life ended at only 16. Please, have my friend and her family in your prayers. Thank you.

I am so deeply sorry for the loss of life of this young girl at the tender age of 16. What did she die from/ Ilness? or was it an accident? Sorry I am replying directly through the email notification so can't see the whole discussion. I do hope you will take time out to reflect and enjoy every minute of your life as much as possible. There is a saying that we live life as if it is our last moment, then we live it to our best capacity and don't waste it on hatred and ugly thoughts, but do good things and smile more.

I am so sorry to hear of this. You didn't say whether it was a disease or accident, but having someone pass at an early age like this is devastating in any instance. I pray that her family can endure the grief and pain that they are experiencing right now...and hope that they can remember all of the wonderful times that they had with their family member.

We might feel sad for the passing of one of important people in our lives. But then, try to realize the goodness of God that it is His will to end a day for that one here under the sun.., to live a life on another level of fullness. As you have said, life is so short and uncertain, it is more likely to spend it wise and efficient because you can't turn it back. My prayers for your friend... and please dont think she's gone. She's just right there in the midst of a beautiful life God has bestowed to her.
