Good times and bad

I had a good day at GKP yesterday, very relaxing. Youth group was pretty laid back too, with people just hanging around and playing pool or touch. During the course of the evening I phoned Barbara Hay who had left a message fo me to call her back in the evening. The call was to confirm that I still have my jobs next year at the new school.
After Youth I came home and played Emperor until late. This morning I was woken up by a phone call from Tuari to tell me that Marcelina, a girl from youth was involved in a car crash and died at 4 o'clock this morning.
I didn't know Marcelina that well but I am struck again by the tragedy of life cut short, it's always such a shock.
Later today Matthew and I are going to a GKP reunion and this evening David is going up to a meeting to help write a script for the church Christmas drama. Tonight I am going out to a restaurant in Petone for our staff Christmas function, which should be fun.

I heard a snatch on the news yesterday morning that there had been a fatal car crash in Upper Hutt and just for a moment I wondered whether it might be someone we knew. But then the thought just passed.
The news that it was someone we knew makes it more of a heartbreak for us. But as you say, it's always such a shock.
