Gosh things have been rough in my world lately. Tuesday afternoon I received a horrible phone call my mine and hubby's dear lifelong friend. His 25 year old daughter, and only child who we helped raise because her mother abandoned her when she was 3 weeks old, died in a tragic accident. She was pregnant with her third child and she had slipped while in the shower, hit her head and drowned. Her father was the one that found her. He had droppped by to see how she was doing when he saw the baby wandering around the house by himself. He let himself in and heard water running, went to the bathroom door to see water all over the place, went in and found her face down in the water. She left behind two little boys. My mind can't wrap around the whole horrible nightmare. We were the first people he called the moment she was born and the first he called when he found her dead. My own children grew up with her and we are all struggling with what happened.
I don't know our friend is going to live through this. His daughter and her family were his entire world. My kids all came over last night and we all just sat together and were so thankful we have each other.
I'll be spending the next few days at the funeral home trying to find a way to understand why things like this happen. So very sad.
