gobsmacked

For the third time in less than a week, I am left heartbroken, sobbing, and unable to come up with the words to describe the sadness I feel at others’ pain.

First, it was my uncle.

Then, Maddie.

And now, Thalon.

I don’t know Maddie’s parents, but I do know Thalon’s mommy. And while I can’t even imagine her pain and sadness right now, I am trying to hold her in my heart. If you are able, please donate to help alleviate their medical bills and funeral costs. And maybe whisper a prayer while you’re at it?

    Have been more than whispering prayers. More like shouting at God.

    It’s all so very wrong.

    First, sending you many virtual hugs. Second, I’m sorry that you weren’t able to make it back for your Uncle Eddie’s service. You loved him when he was here and you should feel good about that. Having a beautiful niece and family to cry over him is such a measure of success for him. Maybe you can tell us some of your favorite Uncle Eddie stories when you’re ready? Losing babies is just not something that can be eased with any amount of logic or platitudes. Empathy and love for others are never wasted. When things get this bad, I like to walk until I don’t feel like screaming anymore. One last virtual hug (X).
