In a Moment, Everything can Change

Steph and Michael at our wedding - so in love!

This morning I received devastating news. My dear friend Stephanie, lost her husband in a tragic car accident last night. He was driving home from work and lost control of the car.

Stephanie and Michael were one of those couples that other people envied. Smart, beautiful, and so obviously in love. They moved down to Austin, Texas together to start afresh in an awesome new city a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love with it. Though Steph has made friends in her new town she is far away from family and long time friends. Thankfully her mom is on her way down. It's torture knowing someone you love is hurting so much and not being able to offer a hug, a shoulder to cry on, or a hand to hold. I hope she knows my heart is with her.

"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."
