Hoping Things Do Not Come In Threes

I received an unfortunate e-mail this afternoon at work (it came in the morning, but as has been the situation all week, I was performing evaluations in the mornings, and could not start my work until about 1:30 P.M. daily, which creates a backlog).

One of the board members for the Project Management Institute (PMI) local chapter, of which I have been the President for the past five years, passed away unexpectedly yesterday. He recently broke his ankle, and was at our meeting in mid-September. Turns out, he had a blood clot in his lungs.

So, I made an entry earlier this week about the husband of a co-worker that passed away from a tragic accident. So, please join me in hoping and praying that there is no credence in the saying that "Things Come In Threes." I do not want a third untimely and unfortunate death.

Peace to all of you, and may you have a great weekend :o)


  1. Very scary and upsetting to hear about your colleague. We definitely don't want a third. :(


  2. I had a bad email today too. Maybe we should quit reading email.
    Seriously I am sorry that you have had a loss of a friend/coworker. Hope you all have a great weekend. This journal saving of entries manually is about to wear me out but at least I'm half way thru. Not saving everything just the ones that mean the most.

  3. Sorry to hear this news hon. I truly hope as well that old wives tale doesn't come to pass. In need of some lighter news? The contractors are gone, finato. Hope your weekend with Beth is spent relaxing in the company of one another. (Hugs)Indigo

  4. So sorry to hear about another loss in your life. I will sure keep you in prayer because I know what you mean about that three thing...it's like a curse or something. Here's hoping that it stays away from you. Sorry agin for the loss of your colleague.

    Pooh Hugs,

  5. I am sorry about your colleague.... that truely sucks...

  6. My condolences, Ken. That is sad news.

  7. I am so sorry, Ken! Certainly puts life into perspective doesn't it? Take care..

  8. I'm so sorry for those losses. Sending along some positive energy to keep it at only 2.
    Hugs, Leigh

  9. My gosh that is awful. Yes, let's just stop counting at 2. Sending good energy for those poor families.

  10. I will pray for no number three, and am sory to hear about the news.



Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
