We had kind of a serious weekend. A good friend, and his sweet wife, lost their newborn baby girl last Monday. So heartbreaking. My hubby went down to Arizona for the funeral, while I stayed home with our kiddos. There's nothing like seeing that kind of loss, to make you appreciate what you have. In the LDS church we believe that little children and babies are free from sin, and therefore return immediately to be their their Heavenly parents. And although there is comfort in knowing this...it doesn't take the sting and hurt of loss away. (You can learn more about our beliefs by clicking here.) I feel so blessed to have my children and my husband...and also the knowledge that there is more to life than just this mortal existence.
Sorry for that super serious start to the week. I just felt like I needed to share!
