"I'm Sorry"

It seems when someone is broken hearted, I lose words. But that loss for words leaves me wanting to say something even more, so its a juggle. I'm not great with words, I don't want to say something I'd regret, but I also don't want to seem apathetic to a broken heart. So often I just say "I'm sorry".

This morning, as I reflect on the going home of miss Sara Swenson all I can do is say "I'm sorry"

It is however quite amazing to me the love and the support and the Jesus that's all intertwined in her story. I don't think I've ever read a more sincere mother's story through the entire process of losing her daughter but still able to say she knows God is faithful. Read that here. Its so much more than a fake "it will all work out" This woman knows her God, knows him well, and knows how to fall at his feet in despair and there is nothing more beautiful in this life than that. I simply can't imagine losing your child. And to think I wanted to take away Riley's pain from shots on Monday.......

Sara's leaving this earth has, I'm sure of it, hit her family hard and also the Corban community hard. I need to admit here that I hate my student loans, and hate their incesant payments, but today I'm reminderd to rejoice at the opportunity to be apart of this community. Seeing status update after status update on Facebook, reading article after article and seeing how blessed we all are to be apart of such a loving community is just awesome.

Sara, you touched a lot of lives, mine being one. You're sweet, you're funny, and now you're healed. Live it up sweet girl and someday, we'll see you in Heaven. Say hi to my Grandma for me {you two had a lot in common}.........

  1. Sometimes that is all you can say. That and just being there to listen if they need it. HUGS!
