How precious life is. Sometimes it takes the worst of things to remind us of this. Last night Christopher and I snuck into Eleanore's room at midnight to watch her sleep. I held her warm tired hand, and he kissed her rosy red cheeks. We told her how much we loved her, and then snuck out before she had the chance to open her eyes.
My heart goes out to the Covey family today. I can't imagine losing a child. Having a child the exact same age really puts it into perspective for me. I'm not good at writing with a serious tone, but today there are no clever sayings or jokes hiding behind this keyboard. Just a lot of sadness, some waterproof mascara, and an aching heart for a family going through the absolute worst.
