Say a little prayer

30 Dec

Whenever I hear of the sudden death of a child my heart freezes and cracks just a little bit. Now that I’m a mother it’s worse, so much worse. Not only can I imagine what that mother is going through, my mind inevitably goes to all of the horrible things that could happen to my own little turtle. Two of my own sisters died of SIDS (one a year older than I am, one a year younger), so I am the daughter of a worrier. Making me a worrier. More, I think, than your average first time mother.

I heard yesterday of the death of a little two year old girl, suddenly and unexpectedly, and I have been thinking of her and her family since. I don’t know them. But I feel for them. If you could, say a little prayer for Faith and her family.
