don't you worry child.

Last week, one of my dearest friends lost her beautiful, kind, loving and devoted mother.
Today, I am in Indiana celebrating her life. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

After hearing the Swedish House Mafia hit for months, one line in particular stood out to me last week. I'm sure they didn't plan for their song, Don't You Worry Child, to inspire a blog post, but it did. The line above struck a chord with me. Loss reminds us how important it is to cherish each day we have on earth--because we never know what day will be our last.

I'll be back to regular programming on Thursday. Keep the infinite wisdom of Swedish House Mafia
front of mind today {and every day}. Heaven absolutely has a plan for each of us. xoxo {av}

  3. Wish I could be there. Lovely post.

  4. I'm sorry for your friend's loss. She's lucky to have you!

    I love this song. So hopeful :)

  5. So sorry for your friend's loss. You are such a good friend to go to Indiana to be w/ her during this time. I'm sure it means a lot to her.

  6. I so wish I could be there too. I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with her when they were in California a few years ago! My heart is breaking for them. :( What a beautiful life!

  7. That is a beautiful song. Sorry for your friend's loss.

  8. Hi {av}, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's loss. I know that it had to mean so much to your friend that you made the trip to be there for her.

    As soon as I read the title of this post, I had an idea where you were going with it, like a gut feeling. These very lyrics hit me the same way recently. A month ago today my husband lost his mom. It's been the most heart-wrenching thing to go through...experiencing the daily why's, how's & what if's. But these lyrics are so true. Even when you're in the darkest moments and you can't understand what's happening, you have to hold on to the knowledge that there's a much larger plan for all of us. I know we've found some comfort in reminding each other of this.

    xoxo ~

  9. i am so sorry for your friend. my "uncle" steve just passed away and i feel so bad for his son. i grew up with steve as basically my back-up dad and it breaks my heart to think that he won't be there for his son since he is only 8.
