I spent the Friday morning at my monthly MOPS meeting, completely unknowing of what was happening in Connecticut. It was not until I checked facebook later that afternoon and read so many comments that I knew something horrible had happened.
Sixteen years ago, my family experienced the tragic unexpected loss of my sister in a car accident. It is not something you ever get over. Every time a story like Friday’s comes across the news, you relive your experience all over again. I know how hard it is losing a sister and cannot imagine EVER being the parent.
I am praying for the families involved. I am holding my boys closer and looking past the messes and not done’s on the to do list. I am content with what I have and oh so thankful we are all safe at home.
