How could I have ever known that after being so moved by the tragedy suffered by my friends, at the loss of their sweet little man last week, that we would so soon suffer our own loss in the birth and death of our first grandchild.
We have received so many words of support and comfort through out the weekend that I am beyond full. I am beyond saturated. I am overflowing. This is what a lifetime of building relationships does. It allows you to be held up when you need it. It allows you to let your knees completely buckle, to throw your arms into the air, and while falling backwards to know that there are many there to catch you. We have felt it to the end of the numbers and back. Thank you kindly.
My son is an amazing man that has been a rock for his sweet and gentle wife. He has held her hand and smiled in her face, knowing that through the blessings of the gospel they will have their little Olive again someday. And if you could have seen the way he held that baby and protected her little lifeless body for the few hours she was in the room with us, you would have fallen madly in love with him, like I did.
We will heal together as a family. We have each other and we have the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
All will be well.
