Yesterday, tragedy struck our family. Our DIL's Brother and his wife lost their 4 month old daughter to a congential heart problem they were not aware of until yesterday. She was a precious, sweet baby and so wanted yet.....the unthinkable happened.
Life on Life's Terms is a bummer sometimes and this is one of those times. It is so hard to wrap my thoughts around all this. I would think above all else that loosing a child would be the absolute worst pain ever.
Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.

God bless your parents, Oliva Grace and may He be with them in the days ahead as they grieve their loss. I pray they hold on to every wonderful moment of your way too short of a life. You were such a blessing to everyone and you will leave a big empty place in all of our hearts.
The death of a baby is like a stone cast into the stillness of a quiet pool;
the concentric ripples of despair sweep out in all directions,
affecting many, many people.
--De Frain, 1991
Tiny Angels rest your wings
sit with me for awhile.
How I long to hold your hand,
And see your tender smile.
Tiny Angel, look at me,
I want this image clear....
That I will forget your precious face
Is my biggest fear.
Tiny Angel can you tell me,
Why you have gone away?
You weren't here for very long....
Why is it, you couldn't stay?
Tiny Angel shook his head,
"These things I do not know....
But I do know that you love me,
And that I love you so".
Coming here and posting this for all of my friends to see is a comfort for me. It is my way of entering into something I can not wrap my thoughts around. It is an attempt for me to work though the pain our family is feeling right now.
Thank you all for being here for me.
