The intensity of emotions for these parest, OMG how do you recover from something like this. A child, how do you live with that ???? If this is not the ultimate test of your faith, what is?
My sweet mom who even in the saddest of circumstances can find a reason to thank God. I remember her telling me when my dad passed, over 24 years ago. That she knew our lives were for ever changed. But, among all that sadness and grieve she was grateful. I asked her, what could you be grateful for at a time like this? She then gave me a hug and said, that eve though I was devastated and inconsolable, the lost of a child would be a greater pain to bare. She seamed so sure about that. Then I understood, she was grateful that my dad would not have to endure the lost of a child.
That's the way it should be, we say goodbye to our parents. A parent should not have to say goodbye to a child.
I pray for all families touched by this tragedy in Connecticut, may God's blanket of love and comfort be with them always. Sending blessing to all my bloggie friends with children, hug them, hug them long.
May God bless us all, xxx.
