Thoughts and Prayers
As I contemplate today on how fragile life is and how instantly it can be taken away I see all of my faults. It has been so much easier today to be patient with the kids - at least mine are still with me. The messes in the house don't seem to matter as much - they can wait to be cleaned up. And I find myself cherishing my husband more than usual. I have so much to be grateful for and so many blessings that it seems amazing to me that I ever find anything to complain about.
I am especially grateful for the gift of the gospel in my life and that I know that this family will be together forever. This wasn't a goodbye, just a leave of absence. It doesn't take away the pain. That will always be there. Those poor sweet little boys will not get to grow up with their mother beside them. But the Lord loves them just as much and I know that their mother will be watching over them from above. We love you so much Dani and little Zach, and we anxiously await the day that we can be together again.
