January 11, 2017… I was so scared because I knew I had a lump in my breast but was still waiting to have a biopsy. Those days feel like eternity when you have to wait. But then my world stopped and my concerns were overshadowed by my friend’s sudden grief- for her daughter had just passed away. It was sudden and unexpected and shocking when I heard it. And my friend dealt with it with an amazing demonstration of grace and love that I admired so deeply (the kind that we think of when we read about Jesus). I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child… I am so sad for my friends who have carried that in their lives. You know who you are… and I pray for you often. It was a strange thing to go a funeral of a young child- so peaceful but so sad for us on this side of heaven. I remember her sparkly shoes and painted fingernails… striking me uncomfortably close having my own girls close to her age. Perhaps it put me in the right place mentally- about to deal with my own challenge that would never seem as hard as what I had just witnessed. Hug your babies a little extra tonight. And say a prayer for my friend- God will know who mean.  💕
