Last night I heard about the death of a four year old . I didn’t know her personally. Though we all know her daddy here. I was shocked, stunned and moved to tears.
I stood in my children’s bedroom and thanked God for every moment he gives me with them. I thought about what I want out of my life and the mom I want to be.
Today I heard that little girl had choked on an apple, and then seemed fine. I guess the apple came out. She then went on to play and collapsed.
How quickly she was gone isn’t important. But a life, a precious child was snatched from her parents in a matter of minutes.
I was stunned. I reeled. I cried.
That could have been my four year old.
Children are always choking, that is a part of life.
No apples, no dangerous food I thought, EVER!
That is not the answer, I cannot protect my children from everything.
Life, these precious lives God has entrusted to us.
Treasure every moment, live a focused life on the things that matter.
Life is a gift,
This post is the way I heard the story, I do not know the actual facts.
This evening I found the testimony of the Daddy who is mentioned in this post.
