This is NOT the post I wanted to write. This is NOT the miracle we had all hoped and prayed for. Will died early this morning, a few hours before church. His mom, Tyree had posted the pictures of the boys yesterday asking for a miracle for her oldest. They had just been on a wonderful family vacation a few weeks ago and now found themselves in a PICU with their oldest son critically ill. One week ago this young man was fine...ready for football, ready for school..I cannot even imagine what Mark and Tyree are feeling now. Maybe because my little's are four little boys, the picture of the the four of them brings buckets of tears. I don't pretend to GET IT or to UNDERSTAND why the MIRACLE did not happen. I just know that my city is hurting today, kids are asking questions and parents are wondering why the Mathews family and not them. I keep reading comments on the prayer page and on their facebook page and they all start with "I HAVE NO WORDS" and that's how we all feel...No words. Just hugs, just tears, just sadness. I have had so many of you message me or email me prayers for the family. I am going to print them and send them to them. If you would like to leave a note in the comments or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) I will be sure and pass them on. Please include the place you live. Thank you for praying for this family. PLEASE do not STOP.
I have not forgotten all the prizes...will post the winners on my holiday blogtomorrow.
I have been married to a "One
of a Kind" wonderful man for 38 years. I am Mom to Greg and Amanda. I am a mother-in-law to Dana and Micah and Grammy to Parker, Austin, Jack and Grayson. I love our family and could be stranded on an island with just them and be perfectly happy forever.
