Even a Diet Drink Can't Make this Better

This has been a pretty hard week for DDW. DDW's (and DDW's Husband's) good friend passed away this week in a skiing accident. Jason Coles was a total original, and no one will ever replace him in our life. I am working on a post about my experiences with Coles, and my feelings about his/our loss. He left behind a great wife and a 2 month-old baby girl.... it is hard to type this. I even feel odd expressing my loss when his wife must be so devastated, but I want to memorialize my feelings for Coles.

DDW's best friend has also had a horrible week. The matter is private, so I will leave it at that.

Christmas is a time for families, and two people with two great families I love are hurting so badly this Christmas. I have had a new perspective on what it means to have a "broken heart" this year. There is only one Person who can really fix a "broken heart" and we celebrate Him this season. I pray that He can fix my friends hearts who are so much more broken than mine.

I have cried so many tears this week for so many people. Even a diet drink, the biggest diet ever imagined, with tons of fresh ice, and a juicy lime can't make this better. Even a drink can't make this better.
