Though I’d like to write this beautiful entry about today being Charlotte’s birthday, my heart is impossibly heavy from the sudden and unexpected death of the child of a friend. We were pregnant together, her beautiful daughter just a few weeks older than my Charlotte, which makes it inherently difficult to reconcile. Their family is incredibly strong in faith, and they will need to be in the upcoming days, months, years.

I simply cannot fathom living through the loss of a child. So, for today, the celebratory pictures will wait, and I ask that you say a prayer for the families that are hurting right now, hug your children, and thank God that whatever bad day you think you had, it was really nothing in the grand scheme of what others have gone through today.

    I hear you Kristen. Such a sad time. I hope you are ok. I can’t imagine what they are going through or the feelings you are dealing with as well. I’m praying for our Blue Ridge family.

    Well said – been praying for them all day.

    I am so very sorry to hear of your friend’s loss. My heart hurts for them. I cannot imagine the pain they are going through at this moment.
