Sad Day with Amazing Reminders...

Today I attended a funeral; one of my coworkers husband passed away unexpectedly on Monday. I can't even begin to explain how bad my heart hurts for her. She does not have a lot of family, nor friends...our department is her family and I pray she knows we are here for her. I won't mention her name on here; but if you could please say a prayer for her throughout the next couple days that would be amazing--I know God will know who you are praying for.

While I sat there today; I couldn't help but think about 'What if that was Zach'...what would I do? I would be so lost. As I hugged her today, she said "He was my best friend"... that's Zach! Zach IS my best friend...he is my everything. I can't possibly imagine the hurt in her heart right now--while watching this sweet lady mourn the loss of her best friend it reminded me that we can never take for granted a moment with our loved ones...because we never know what tomorrow holds.

Theres been many of times I have wished that I could see in the future--it sure would help at times; however we don't know what tomorrow holds--but I DO know WHO holds tomorrow...and I know He will hold our hands throughout the good and the bad. I have prayed that he will be with this sweet lady during this time of her loss, and I know he will be holding her hand through this.

Yesterday I caught I myself--as any human and any wife my husband (believe it or not) can drive me up the wall...(he really is good at too-ha!!) but during my little 'urghh' moment, I sat there and thought...'she' would give her left arm for this 'urghhh' moment right now, I stopped...thought about it and thanked God for blessing me with my husband and more importantly for the moments that he does drive me up the wall...

As you say your prayers tonight, please inculde this sweet lady and when your husband/wife/family/friend drives you up the wall next time, stop for a moment and thank God that they are here to drive you up the wall--(it won't stop them from driving you up the wall, but it sure will give you a different view of their 'little moments')

"Never take for granted the things closest to your heart, cling to them as you would for your life...for without them-life is meaningless"

Wow! Thanks for that post....so true! There are times my kids are driving me insane or my husband is getting on my last nerve..but then I think how thankful I should be that they're here. I'd rather them get on my nerves than not be here at all.

Thinking of your sweet friend!

Thanks for this reminder, because I definitely need it! I will pray for your co-worker tonight b/c I can't imagine being in her shoes...but as you said, we never know what tomorrow holds.

Life is so precious. One of my classmate's husband was recently killed in a car accident by a drunk driver and to listen to how she's taking it all and how her heart breaks is devastating. Your friend will definitely be in my prayers.

I am so grateful God has given me Bryan! Bryan is my best friend. This was a great post as we all occassionally need reminding of the blessings we have.

I totally agree with your comment on your profile..."Infertility...it does not define us, but it's a huge part of our lives."
