This Wasn't Supposed to Happen

Late last night before heading to bed I reviewed all my unread blogs and read the sad news about Marija (the j is silent) written by her husband on Marija's blog Holding Court.  Marija lived and worked as an interior designer in Chicago.  She was killed in a car accident over the weekend while coming back from an antique buying trip in Atlanta.  This wasn't supposed to happen.  Antique buying trips aren't supposed to be deadly.  Blogging isn't supposed to be sad.  Her two children and her husband aren't supposed to be left without their Mommy and wife.

I never met or corresponded with Marija, but that doesn't matter.  It turns out you don't have to know someone personally to feel sad about the loss of their lives.


  1. Sharon, I know what you mean. This was shocking and heartbreaking news. Marija was one of the first people who commented on my blog and was kind and supportive. I am so sad too - heartbroken for her husband and children and for the loss of a young and promising life. It hurts.

  2. All I can say, they got a good one.
