Holding on...


I have a broken heart. Not for myself, but for 2 little girls that will have to grow up w/out their mother. On Thanksgiving night, Jennifer Miller Williams passed away from Lung Cancer. Way to young to leave this earth. She had just given birth to her 2nd child like a month ago. I can't fathom what her husband is going through right now. I can not see Joe taking care of Aiden and a newborn. I know he would do it, and I know he would be the best father (bc he already is) but I pray that never happens. I have a hard time understanding why this has happened. They say that you are not suppose to question God's reasons. I say hogwash. I question everything, this is who I am, I love to learn and soak it all in. But this, well this, I can NOT soak in. I can't understand why rapist and murderers live and a beautiful, young, loving mother is taken away so early. Please pray for this family and for all of us who are trying to understand.
Stop worrying over the laundry, and stupid meaningless things. Don't worry about who's turn it is to take the trash out, or about the keys you can't find. STOP and hug your kids. Hold on to them and just love them. Life is precious and can be take away way too quick. Stop arguing w/your spouse over who gets to hold the remote, or who gets the change the next "poop diaper". Forget about it all for a while. After all, if you were on your death bed, are you really going to worry about the trash? We are not promised another tomorrow, treasure this day. For this day, may be the only day you have left.

*Thank you God for the beautiful blessings in my life. Thank you for all you do and all you are. Help the Miller-Williams family through this hard time. When I get too busy, may you whisper little reminders to me. *
