My Heart Is Heavy Today

I did really good yesterday, I was on the verge of tears all day because I had to leave the girls, but I managed to keep my mind focused on other things and never had a big cry, just misty eyed all the way to work.

But, then I got to work and heard some really sad news and I cried my eyes out. One of the men that I work with lost 2 of his children and his mother-in-law in a car accident Saturday. 2 of his other children are still in the hospital.

I cannot even begin to fathom the pain and devastation that he and his family are going through right now. The kids that were killed were 6 and 9 years old. How do you even begin to cope with something like that? I know that the grace of God will get a person through anything and with God all things are possible, but the pain of losing 2 of your precious children would be devastating.

Please keep this family in your prayers, they have a long journey of healing ahead of them. It reminds me that I have so much to be thankful for everyday.

This has always been one of my biggest fears... and I will keep the family in my prayers and count my blessings tonight.
