I have a wonderful boss. She is like another mother who I wish was my own. She took me under her right wing and treats me like family. She gave me my own office and made sure I was set up to succeed.
Well, this week, 2 of her siblings died unexpectedly. As she was flying to another state to attend her sister's funeral, her brother passed away. I couldn't even imagine it. I feel sick to my stomach thinking about it. I've already sent my condolences earlier this week when her sister passed away and then 2 days later, her brother died. I feel numb and I don't know what to do. Gifting flowers seems so weird at this time. She is still out of town. The sad thing is because she was on her way to her sister's funeral to say goodbye, she wasn't able to say goodbye to the brother that died that very day.
It reminds me that life is so short and unpredictable. All of this money and stress that we put on ourselves seem useless if we can't bring that money with us when we die. We all need to live righteously and happily, and in harmony with others. That makes life more meaningful.
