My Sweet Man

This is going to be one of those mushy love notes. (You were warned!)

Mu husband has always been supportuve of whatever I do--whether it's a hobby, a job, or a ministry.

For the past 5 years, I have worked with kids from birth to 3. (Prior to that I taught elementary school.) This weekend, a family I work with lost their 9 month ol daughter due to a tragic accident. After about 2 months in the pediatic ICU, they had to make the heartbreaking decision to remove life support. I cannot imagine the pain they are facing.

But what does this have to do with my husband? Last night, John offered to attend the funeral with me today. He doesn't know the family. He has other things he could be doing while our kids are all in school. But he realized that I might need some support and comfort. Wow!

Please say a prayer for Anna and Mark. And hug your kids a little tighter. We have no guarantees...

John is a great guy! Praying for Anna and Mark, as well as for you and everyone else whose lives have been touched through this family.

God bless that poor family. I am so sorry.

I'm glad your husband is going with you.
