Pain beyond comprehension

I haven't posted in a couple of days because while I have lots to blog about, it all seems trivial compared to what some people are going through.

Caleb's teacher at school, Ms. Monica, is in a place in life that I hope to never be. Her oldest son (he was 18 and she has another son who is 7) was in an ATV accident a week ago Monday. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and died last Saturday night. I found out Tuesday morning when I took the boys to school.

I don't know Ms. Monica very well. She's a sweet lady and was Caleb's favorite teacher all last year. He was thrilled when he found out that she would be his teacher for his summer program. Ms. Monica loves Caleb and always commented to me that he, "is a special child". She also loves my girls and when they were first born and life was so hard she would remind me that it goes by fast, so enjoy the moments.

To say that my heart aches for this woman is an understatement. I cannot even fathom the pain that she is going through right now. In an instant, her life has changed drastically.

The viewing is today and funeral tomorrow. I am going to try to go. If you think about it, please pray for this woman. Please pray that she clings to Jesus.
