Tragic Weekend

This weekend started like any other weekend, and then Mr Man's cellphone rang at 5 am on Saturday morning. NEVER a good sign when the phone rings early in the morning - it was his best friend and one of his twin sons was gunned down at a Halloween party at the age of 21. I cannot even begin to fathom the pain of such a loss. It is not natural to bury your children. My mother is having surgery this am to remove the nipple on the breast they found the cancer.  Praying for healing and peace for those around me - makes my little depression and issues seem to trivial to the point that I'm ashamed I was wallowing on such menial issues.

Hoping this week reveals blessings for both me and you :)

  1. I cannot imaging your stress level. Prayers to the family of the lost boy. Prayers to your mother. But don't ever underestimate the damage depression can do. I lost my marriage and custody of my children, my health, and many friends because I couldn't cope with depression. Take care of yourself. I will be thinking of you.
