perspective.

If you haven't heard, a four year old girl died at Connor's daycare today. She was choking on a piece of food, went into cardiac arrest and they were unable to revive her (or so we understand).

You can't help but think about the 'what ifs'. What if that were my child? Bryan wouldn't have even made it back to town in time to ride to the hospital together because he's working an hour away right now. What if we had a bad ride to school or a bad dropoff where he didn't want me to go. I can't even begin to imagine what that family is going through. The staff is beyond upset. My heart aches for all of them.

I just want to cry typing this.

Needless to say, Connor got lots of hugs and kisses tonight and we said some extra prayers before bedtime. Now I need to stop thinking about the what ifs and just cherish every moment. Do the things that make me happy, make my family happy.

Ugh. Unbelievably sad.

So I may have just teared up a little...how awful. I don't have kids yet but I can't imagine losing one if I did. Give your little guy a big hug for me too!

Christy & Bryan,
There are NO words to descibe what has happened yesterday at Connors day-care.We, looking on the "out-side" only can share in the "pain" that ALL are going through.
Right now, they ALL need PRAYER to help them get through it and to "heal."

On our knees,
The Bode's
Nate and Cheryl

And BIG HUGS and KISSES to CONNOR!
