Life Goes On

Monday morning meet us with good news and bad and death.  A 13 year old was hiking in Guam and died. Heartbreaking.

Within an hour we received an email saying our oldest niece is pregnant - this will be the first great-grandchild in Drew's family.  We all are so excited!!   Just thrilled!

But when I think of this family in heart breaks.  Not just for them, though.  Just before Christmas a 9 year old boy here locally died when his 4-wheeler hit a  tree root and flipped over on him.  And this summer an extended family was picnicking at the local river and lost 7 of the grandchildren drown....all within a few minutes.

It's amazing how life is so fragile....and so resilient at the same time.
