Another thought hit me later. I realized how precious life really is. I try to remind myself of that quite often, especially when I get upset with my kids. I try to picture life without them, the feeling I would feel and my desire to have them back. That really brings me back to reality. You never know when you day or life will change. It can happen in an instant. We certainly didn't plan yesterday, nor did we desire it. However, it did happen. It could have been worse. I am just thankful that God is in control. My sweet girl had a hard time last night wondering why God continues to allow this to happen to her. I explained that nothing that happens to us is a suprise to God. He sifts everything through His hands first. Why things happen, we don't always know, but if we have faith in Him we will be better able to see what His will is for us. I told Bobbi that maybe someday she will be able to give comfort to someone else who is going through what she is going through right now. Only time will tell what God has up His sleeve for us. We must just be patient and watch. So the next time you get upset with your kiddos just picture what life would be like if they were gone. It will be a sobering moment for you.
