Something you hope you never have to do
Good grief this is going to be morbid, but it is the first thing that popped into my head. Please forgive me.
I hope I never have to bury a child... or deal with a terminal illness with my child.
I have an uncle that lost his 16-year old daughter to Lupus. I've known a man whose son was accidentally run over by a school bus. I've read blogs of moms and dads that have lost their children to cancer, cystic fibrosis, car accidents, and drug problems.
I cannot imagine anything worse.
My best friend died when he was in his late 20s. A friend of mine in high school was killed in a freak car accident.
And the parents that have to go from day-to-day with their children in a war? Those brave soldiers are the children of someone. To live with the thought that someone in uniform could knock on their door at any time? Truly heart and gut wrenching.
That loss is one that cannot be overcome. It isn't the way it is supposed to be.
I am going to go hug and love-up my babies, and then send a bunch-o-prayers to keep them safe, sound, and healthy.
