Full Moon Tonight and Remembering a Friend

The first FULL MOON of the New Year is tonight. It's called the Wolf Moon. This beautiful photo was found on Pinterest and I love it. I don't know if the clouds will clear enough here in Oregon for me to actually see the moon tonight. Some of the other names are winter, quiet, freezing, cold and staying inside moon.

I am sad tonight. On Saturday, Jim and I were told that a dear friend had taken his life. His dad drove to our home to tell us. I taught with his mom as a young teacher and have known Tim since he was in grade school. He was struggling with things in his life but we thought he was doing better. It will always be a mystery, something we will not be able to understand. He leaves a daughter behind who he loved so dearly. I am praying for all of his family and especially his daughter. So very sad.

I want to thank all my sweet blogger friends who have been so kind to read my blog and leave me messages. It is just hard to keep doing everyday things right now. I will be back soon.

Oh dear, Linda. That was very sad news, indeed.

We cannot, simply cannot understand why someone does that. That poor man must have been so very devastated with life.

Not a good start to the new year but it is what it is.

Please know I am very sad for you and his family, especially his daughter. How old is she?

Will remember you all in my prayers. Susan

That is so sad. It's hard to understand someone giving up on life when others are trying so hard to stay alive. I hope he is at peace now and his family and friends can come to an acceptance of what has happened. You are in my thoughts.
