Life is fragile

Today is a very sad day for a family that I have known forever!!  A very sweet young lady lost her mom today, at just 45 years old.  She had a massive heart attack almost 2 weeks ago - it took 12 uses of the paddles to bring her back, 3 stints had to be put in, but she was still here.  I just got the word that her battle is over.  She is with God now.  I can't wrap my mind around that.  I saw her just a few short months ago.  She looked great!  It's just proof that we never know when it will be our time.  Life is fragile.  We should never leave things unsaid, never walk away mad, always tell the people that you love, that you love them!!  My heart goes out to the Brooks and Clanton families - they truly lost a wonderful sister, wife, and mom today.

On the other side of this tragedy is the miracle in Chili - I have been glued to CNN and HN since last night - watching the 33 miners come up out of the ground one by one is incredible!!  The men are wearing shirts with Jesus on the sleeve - God is all over the news today in a great way!  ONe of the men said he isn't being rescued, he is being reborn.  What a great way to look at it - they know first hand how fragile life is and I'm sure they won't ever take it for granted again!! Another said that there weren't 33 of them down there, there were 34 because God was always with them!  22 are out so far -  Praise God for that miracle!!


  1. I need to edit this and spell Chile right!!!

  2. I'm sorry for your loss...she was so young! What a tragedy for her loved ones. Hard to know that there is purpose in this, but He has a plan.Thinking of you. :(

    I agree with everything you said about the miners....what a miracle!

  3. I know that He has a plan even though it's hard to understand. I just feel so bad for her daughter and husband. I haven't had a lot of contact with them in the last several years but she was always such a sweet person... So very sad :(
