Truth #6- Something I hope I never have to do....

Pin It
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.

You know, I couldn't agree with you more. I'm such a paranoid person that I think about this a lot, to the point where I scare myself into believing it a little bit and I have to go rush to check on my girls when they are sleeping. At least once a day I think of a new scenario that could take them away from me. I don't know why, it's probably not healthy either. Just last night I was thinking the house was going to catch fire overnight and I wouldn't be bale to get to them upstairs. How devastating :o( Anyways, I totally get you, I definitely agree.

thanks for stopping by my blog, and for following along. i've been reading your posts...and came to this one and had to comment.

as you read on my blog, i have buried my two sons within the last year. it is like no other feeling, and there aren't words to describe the ache and the pain. we do not know anything this side of Heaven - truly - about life and death.

it is unfathomable to me why such innocent life must be taken from those who want only to bring a living child into the world... i too pray that you never know this horror. i pray that no woman has to know.
