But this week is really taking it's toll on me.
LittleD lost one of her friends this week.
It finally made the news last night and this morning, and it's about to do me in seeing it recounted again and again.
She had flu-like symptoms all weekend and her parents couldn't wake her up Tuesday morning.
She was only 12. And a really, really sweet girl.
LittleD is coping with the first loss of someone her age. She's working her way through it... gradually.
I'm thankful for a great, great set of teachers and counsellors who are there to help her and her classmates cope.
Meanwhile, as a mom, I'm hurting for LittleD and her friends.
And the the family of this child. I wish I could take away the hurt for all of them.
And I'm trying like heck not to think "that could be my family".
So, I'm hanging in there until next week--which has got be better.
We just have to get through a funeral first.
"But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the.
children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God”. (Luke 18:16)
