I have been thinking about this since it happened but just couldn't bring myself to post about it.
There was a horrible accident on May 4 in Southern California. A tractor-trailer hit a minivan and killed all three children inside. They were carefully strapped into car- and booster-seats. The children were ages 5, 4 and 2. They were laid to rest last weekend.
How does one make any sense out of that? For those of us who are Christians, we are taught that death is not the end. But it doesn't make it any easier to lose someone. Much less three darling children. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like for their family right now. But they are in my thoughts and they are in my prayers. And I am reminded once again at how blessed I am to have my loved ones around me.
