Good-bye for now...

My sweet friend, Monica, passed away yesterday morning. I just really can't find the words now but please read and watch her at my husband's blog...here.

These last few weeks with losing my Grandmother and another baby to death and now accepting the reality of Monica's eternal healing instead of an earthly one, I have many questions. While always surrounded by lots people, the days can seem lonely and dark in ways I have not experienced before. I did, however, feel monumentally thankful and refreshed by the message that Monica graciously shared in her interview...just a typical mom, reminding us that life can take many turns and it's important to be grateful and express love and truth-right now, while we still can.

She will be greatly missed by so many that she blessed so much. She's still blessing me in my own grief.

Charity, you have been in my prayers. What a heavy burden you are going through. i know that you know all the right answers and i also know that there can be times when we want more. That is where prayer from brothers and sisters in Jesus become so important. My love and prayers go out for you during this time of mourning....t
