A sad weekend

Last Tuesday started a horrible chain of events. The daughter of a friend of ours, who is also a niece to another friend, was killed in a car accident. A young driver who had skipped school was trying to get home in "a hurry" at 80 miles per hour and ran a stop sign and T boned Pam's truck. Her 15 year old daughter was also in the truck, but only has scratches on her forehead and is extremely sore, with bruises. Pam worked in a local school, was active in church and a well rounded, lloving, helpful person to all she met. She will be greatly missed by many. Her visitation, on Saturday, was at the same funeral home where our darling granddaughter, Jessie, was in 2007. DH didn't go to visitation so I thought I should represent us and glad I did. As soon as I arrived, her aunt (my friend) said she knew I'd come. All was well until I woke up Sunday -- sad and depressed. I could have easily stayed in bed the entire day, but went to church and worked in the garden afterwards. And of all the songs to be chosen by the choir director, I sing in the choir, was "It is Well with My Soul", one of the songs for Jessie. I came out of the choir before we started that song,- I've tried numerous times to stay in the choir and end up crying, so now I exit before we start. I'm better today, it wouldn't take a lot to set me off, but at least today I can control the "waterworks". God always has a purpose, but sometimes it sure is hard to convince yourself - that's where faith comes in. We cry for our loss but should celebrate them being with God. Thanks for listening....


  1. awww Sandy, I am so sorry for your loss. It is hard when something like this happens and it seems like for no reason, although we know that is not so.

    Hugs to you, I know how hard it is to have a hard week, and find yourself so down over events happening. I hope you feel better each day and push for a happier days ahead.

    I am so sorry for your friend, and family, how hard to have to go through that. Hugs.

  2. Sandy,...
    I am so thankful that I stopped by your place today...I am sorry about your loss and of the loss of your friend. I hope you will step outside and soak in all the beauty that God surrounds your life with. I pray that God will lift every heavy thought from your mind and that your day will be filled with peace...
    God Bless


Thanks for visiting, I love to hear from you.
