Something I Hope I Never Have to Do
(30 days of truth, hosted by the Young Retiree)
Doesn't even take me 10 seconds to think of what I would say I hope I never have to do. I hope that never in my life, I have to bury one of my beautiful children. I just cannot imagine how difficult & absolutely heartbreaking that must be to endure.
I watch the news, read stories, surf the web & hear horrendous stories of parents losing their children to some of the most terrible things. It kills me. I cry every time as I'm sure millions of other mothers do. No one wants to ever even imagine that they themselves could lose their own child. It's unfathomable to me, impossible. Although I know it's not....in my own mind, I pray to God that it is.
I do still believe that every little thing happens for a reason....but finding that reason when an innocent child is killed....is so very hard. I don't think that my mortal mind can do so. Only Jesus can answer why.
I hurt for every mother who has had to lose their baby...I don't know what I would do if I had to go through it. Numbness & pain is all I can think.
This I hope to NEVER do.
