Tragically, one teen, lost his life last night. He was 16 years old and the son of one of my friends. I cannot imagine the loss she must feel.
Another family, one that I am just acquaintances with, have 3 kids in the hospital. 2 out of surgery, recovering, and one waiting for the surgeries yet to come.
I have to say, I hugged my little ones a little tighter last night. I haven't talked to my oldest in quite awhile, but sent him just a little note of 'I love you' on Facebook this morning.
I just pray that the mom doesn't lose her faith in Jesus. He is truly the Great Healer and can and will lead her through this.
