It's been a sad start to the week with the tragic passing of fellow crafter and friend Katie Renz. She lost her battle with stomach cancer just almost a year after diagnosis. She's left behind a beautiful young family and my thoughts are with them as they adjust to life without her in their lives. I have been amazed at how the crafting community has come together for Katie and it warms my heart. One thing I have gained from this is perspective, my little problems seem like minor blips compared to what Katie had to face and I'm extremely grateful for my life right now. We never know what's around the corner for us, so embrace life now.
