I haven’t even read Lean In, but I can’t stop thinking about Sheryl Sandberg. Her husband’s sudden death last weekend reminds us all that life can change in a blink.
From all accounts, he was a wonderful human being and I cannot imagine moving into Mothers Day weekend after just losing your best friend and spouse and your children’s other parent. She recently wrote – of course – on Facebook: “10 years of being a parent with him is perhaps more luck and more happiness than I could have ever imagined. I am grateful for every minute we had.”
This is basically a post about being grateful. Sometimes we don’t realize how enormously blessed we are until a loved one is gone.
