Today has been an interesting day. Definitely a somber one. I'm having a hard time today wanting to go out and do anything positive.
This afternoon, I went to a funeral of a little 10 1/2 month old baby girl who lived in Glendale (about 5 minutes away). Her mom has already lost a baby before this one, and is also pregnant with another. This little girl, Hailey, was so precious. Just a beautiful little girl. She always had some health problems following her, but this week, she died of SIDS during the night. The father carried the casket. So tiny. And everyone was asked to wear pink in honor of her. The funeral was really good. I could definitely feel the spirit and Hailey there... But I just kept thinking the whole time that I never want this to be me. I never want to have that awful day of burying a child. But, only the Lord knows what's ahead of us in our lives. I hope and pray that it's not ahead for us. My prayers are with that sweet couple and their family.
I got home, and listened to my messages, and could only hear part of a message about a crash in Moab. I got on the internet and found the story, only to find out that my brother-in-law's best friend had passed away in the plane crash. Along with him, his father, and 8 others from Cedar passed away as well. I've met this friend a few times... But didn't know him very well. But it still hit me so hard. Judy and Jared- you, and his wife and family are all in our prayers. I'm so so sorry...
Live is so fragile. It scares me sometimes. I told Jeff that sometimes you don't really realize that death is real until a day like today.
