Friday, March 14, 2014
This is a bittersweet time for our family. On the one hand we have this precious little granddaughter blessing our lives even though we haven't officially met her in person yet. But even photos and video chat bring so much joy. There is nothing like a brand new life when it comes so beautifully packaged!
But with all this happiness comes sadness as my mother-in-law died today. She had a series of strokes and was quickly declining over the past couple of weeks. We knew this was coming and for the most part were prepared and said our goodbyes, but it doesn't take away the sting of loss.
We are thankful the Lord gave us this sweet new life to serve as a welcome distraction amidst the saying goodbye to another loved member of our family.
