Heavy Heart

Tonight, my heart bleeds for one of our Cottage Lake families. Two beautiful kids lost their mother yesterday.

I've thought so many things today:
1. It's not fair.
2. Why THEM?
3. Those poor kids.
4. What can I do to help?
5. How can I soothe their hearts?
6. How will their dad manage?

Please pray for them. I've prayed that they feel God's love. That they feel a sense of security and comfort and know that their mother loves them very much.

I went to my mom and dad's house tonight and melted into my mom's arms. Cried. No ... sobbed. I feel SO LUCKY that I CAN hug my mom. Tell her that I love her.

I'll fall asleep tonight, thinking of you, you two beautiful angels.

This is all so hard to understand. It's like my body just refuses to digest the information. We need to really reach out to the kids...I can't begin to fathom how we fill the void.

The loss of a mother leaves a whole that can only be slowly filled by the love of other women, a Grandmother, teacher or even a friend. My heart goes out for those two babies.
