Losing a child....

With sadness I write this post....yesterday our nephew died in a tragic car crash and we are in so much shock over it that we can hardly believe it....Life is so scary in times like these when you wonder why something like this happens.....to someone so young ...so full of life and health....
It makes you really realize what a gift each and every day is...and how we should never take anything for granted....I mean anything.....So do me a favor and remember this and take time each day to do the right thing ...to call your family....to tell them how much they mean to you....to share in life ......we all think that things can never happen to us....but the truth is anything can happen at any time....and you can never ever be prepared ....so you just have to live and cherish each moment....I haven't created anything new yet today...so I added a picture my Mom made me when I was a wee little girl...she said the angel watched over us...(my brother and I) and now this angel sits in our sons room watching over him.....and I know that an angel is with our nephew and his family today and always.....

Oh my God! I was so scared to when I read the title. Diana, this is the third death for someone very close to me. First Bella's loss, then Arija's and now yours. Oh my God! I am so sorry. I am sending my love to you. My poor heart can no longer break, it has to learn to stretch all corners of the globe to envelope those I care for in their times of sorrow. My dearest Diana, love love love.

What a tragedy Diana!
I have just read it. I am catching up after a few days away.....
To loose a child must be beyond imagination. I wish you and your family strenght to deal with this loss.
And yes you are right, life has unexpected turns so we should enjoy the company of our loved ones while we have the chance and make every moment count!

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh, Diana. I am so very sorry. Such a loss is especially tragic and senseless when it is a child, and so I weep for your nephew and your family. I wish I could embrace you and absorb all your sorrow. You are right. I am thankful for every day, every moment I have with my family and friends.

Wishing you peace and love,
bella

What an awful tragedy to happen, Diana. I am so so sorry. I am always terrified that something might happen to my children, even though they are grown up. More especially my Grandchildren, who are adorable. I truly relish every day I spend with them. Love and hugs to you.
