Please hug your kids a little tighter tonight....

This weekend I was in Washington, DC ( I will post more about later) and I heard through Facebook news I never wanted ever to hear.  A four year old in my town lost her life.  She was playing at graveyard with a bunch of friends during VBS and a gravestone feel on her.  The mom is an acquaintance of mine as we knew each other in college and she was my nurse when I was pregnant with my youngest.

I can't imagine what the mom is going through right now.  She did what she could as a nurse as soon as this freak accident happened and then was escorted to the hospital as her daughter was area lifted not knowing what happened.  Her other daughter was hurt by the gravestone as well.   Today, they buried their little girl.  I was not able to attend the funeral being on the trip.  All I can do is pray and wait for information on how I can take them a meal.

So, please hug your kids a little closer tonight and send some comforting thoughts their way.  These gravestones have been through mountain winds, but randomly fell.

 I know I will when my boys come back from camp tomorrow.

  1. Gosh, I can't imagine. I have a cousin who lost her son when they were about the age my twins are now. I think about her daily.

  2. How awful. I have a 4-year-old, and I can't imagine losing her. I will definitely hold my little ones a little closer tonight.

  3. OMG. How absolutely awful. I don't know that I could handle something like this. I am far too weak. Devastating.
