No parent should have to bury a child.

It doesn't matter what age the child may be, it just isn't fair.  I just woke up in the same place I was in yesterday.  Sort of stuck in shock and excruciating pain.  I physically feel as if my heart has been ripped in half.

I can only offer kind words to this family about their loss.  And food.  Don't forget the tradition of taking food.  I did that yesterday.  Some reason taking food brings comfort to people on the outside.  I took food and picked up H from their house.  Heartbroken.

I learned that my H had been texting him all through the afternoon and night.  He had been out with his friends when the accident happened..  He died while texting my daughter I believe.  They were in a conversation and then his texts stopped.  I just got chill bumps typing that out. **Let me add that he was NOT driving the car, he was a passenger in the back seat.  I didn't want people to think he was texting and driving.**

There were four in the car, three of them required surgery and you know the fate of the fourth one.

How does one prepare for this sort of thing??  Losing a child. 

It made me think about my mom.  I'm not sure if you know this but I was a twin.  I had a twin brother Michael.  We were born very premature.  I weighed 2 pounds and 3 ounces at birth and he weighed a little over 3 pounds at birth.  Sadly he died when we were seven days old.  My mom and dad were very young when we were born, not only were they coming to terms of being parents they also had to deal with a loss of one of their babies.  Then they had to bury that baby boy.  Oh, goodness.  I couldn't even begin to imagine the pain they went through. 

I'm sure it changes you for forever.

It's devastating. I haven't lost a child, but have been forever touched by the tragic outcome of a car accident. It's been three years and it is still a big part of my emotional day. Every day.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone in this young man's life as well as the other people injured in this terrible accident. Hugs.

Conversations with my best friend BG. #thebgs

This will be a random question that will be from a CrAzY conversation with my Beastie Grits.

The first ever question asked since the very small, more work to do, blog change over.

1)  Where do you keep your wine?

My response,

"Above the washing machine as no one else knows how to use such a complex machine."

She said, I picture with her hands on her hips, "Yeah, NO SHIT!  LOL"

Thank you thank you thank you,
