Forever in our hearts
Today I got a harsh reminder of how fragile life can really be. And it came in a way that I wish no one had to experience.
Some friends of mine lost their 7 week old baby girl this morning to SIDS. When I first heard this, I couldn't stop crying, and every time I think about it or see another post on facebook, the tears start again. My heart is breaking for them. I just saw them last week, and held her in my arms... maybe that is why it has hit me so hard. Or maybe the fact that I couldn't imagine anything happening to one of my sweet babies.... But I can't even imagine the grief that this family and their 3 other young girls are going through.
Rest in Peace Sweet baby Sydney. You are loved and missed dearly. I know you are in the arms of Jesus right now, and though God's plan is perfect, it isn't always easy for us to understand.
