These last few days have been tough ones. My friend, Roberta, is hiking a "trail to meet God face-to-face". She's been battling leukemia for a little over a year. I don't understand why God wants to take her...she is one of those people who lights the way to Him. I have learned so much about faith and mothering from her. She has five children-her youngest is only 10.
On Tuesday, my best friends mother in law died suddenly. She was 76-that's younger than my father-in-law and just a little older than my parents and my mother-in-law. My dad's health is not good. My father-in-law is going to have surgery this week for an aortic aneurysm. I'm not ready to lose any of them. Sometimes, I feel paralyzed by that thought.
I believe in heaven. Why doesn't that comfort me?
