Only one thing is promised.

I've erased this entry and started over a couple of times now because I don't know how to begin. I've worked at an elementary school for their before and after care for about 7 years of my life before landing my current job. I loved my job and my favorite part was the kids. I had a couple of the parents laugh and joke around with me and one in particular that was always so nice to me. His name was Garrett Blagg. I was in the midst of trying to quit my job and find a full time job that would pay more and have "benefits" and Garrett helped me. He listened to me vent about my current situation and how I wanted to get out ASAP. He even took my resume and had people at his job review it and give me feedback on how to improve it in order to get a new job. He would constantly come to pick up his sweet, beautiful. blue-eyed daughter, yet let her play for around 30 minutes even after he arrived, just so she could have fun with her friends. He always put his family first and cared about his daughters immensely. (He had another daughter that was a couple years younger, just as beautiful) In fact, I just read over some e-mails from him, one of them saying the following:


He truly cared for his kids, more than anything. They are now both in elementary school and having to deal with heartbreak. A couple days ago, I received a text from my former boss saying that he had passed away. He was very young and I was in shock. I dug around the internet and it was true. If you'd like to read about it, here is the link I found: http://posthope.org/garrett-blagg

This is the last email I received from him and I can't stop wishing that I could just email him back. If there's one thing on this Earth that's promised, it's that everybody has a time, when it's their time to go, and there is nothing we can do to change it. I hope he is no longer in pain and rests in peace, watching over his daughters.


El Fatiha.
