I just found out that the baby daughter of a friend of mine died on October 29th. I hadn't heard the news until last night. I felt so bad that I didn't know.
I do have to say that I see this friend at the dance studio where our daughters dance together. It was fun to see her belly get bigger and bigger as her pregnacy progressed. She really didn't get that big to tell you the truth. She had an easy delivery. Her baby, Nichole, was beautiful.
I just have this overwhelming feeling of sorrow for this family. I think it is because that three of our children are the same ages. Whatever the reason for the sorrow and the tears, I pray for the family every time Nichole comes to my thoughts. There is a reason that this has effected me so deeply. I am not sure why. Maybe it is because they need the prayers.
