I have been a blogger slacker. I haven't done well on keeping up with yours and have certainly not kept up with mine.

Congrats to you on your BFP's (big fat positive) and on finding out the sex of your newest additions. You all have been very blessed.

As I mentioned last time we have alot going on in our lives right now. None of which I feel comfortable talking about still, but totally appreciate all of the positive words and prayers. I promise I will fill you in when I am able.

This past weekend we received some very sad news that a fellow classmate from high school died in a freak accident. She was 37 years old and at her child's track meet. There is some conflicting news still on exactly what happened, but she was headed to the infield to meet with her child and hit her head. She died instantly.

HOW???? How do these absolutely unnecessary tragedies happen? I lost a child before he ever got to be in the prime of his life. Before he got to crawl, talk, walk, play sports, attend church/school, tell me he loved me, find the love of his life, get married, have children, etc.

She was in the prime of her life. Married her high school sweetheart and had two children. Living the dream she had as a child growing up. I am so sadden for her family and friends. Please pray for peace for her family. This type of grief is so difficult, so unimaginable. You cannot prepare yourself for this. Pray that her child does not carry any guilt that this happened at his sporting event. It is so easy to accept responsibility in situations that you shouldn't.

Life throws you so many curves balls you cannot anticipate, get out your mitts we can catch them if we try. Life is not impossible if you concentrate on what matters.

Dani, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend and her family. I can't even begin to imagine their shock and pain. I'll pray for them.

Sometimes I really don't have a clue how and why God allows certain things.... Even when I try to figure out I end up being more upset. For now I just trust the He IS LOVE and Almighty and knows more than we ever could.

Thanks for keeping us updated on what's going on with you and the Mr.!

Dani, thank you for your comments on my blog. I am skimming yours to try to put together your story and couldn't get past your beautiful baby boy....what an angel. I am so sorry for you loss and have no clue what your journey has been since then.....but I'll catch up and look forward to supporting you through your journey as well.

I bought a card today that had this verse on it and it was comforting with all that we're going through, hope it brings you some comfort today too:
"I will be your God through ALL of your lifetime. I made you and I will care for you..." Isiah 46:4

I'm sorry to hear about your HS classmate. It makes you realize that life is very short and tragedies are real.

I'm sending you good thoughts and prayers on whatever you have going on... and looking forward to the update when you can make one.
