So the girls were with my mom most of the day, so not a ton to report tonight. But I've been going back and forth on whether to share the following story and decided that tonight I would. Be warned, it's hard to read.
I just signed into Yahoo the other day to check my mail and somehow this news story popped up and I clicked on it---I really wish I hadn't.
So then mistake number two was going over to the mom's blog that they mentioned in the news story--- and as a fellow mom blogger it's heartbreaking to see the wonderful life she documented and then to know how it all ended recently. I mean honestly, she blogged an entry just *hours* before coming home to find her kids dead. I can't imagine.
This really got me thinking though. As a mom blogger, if something tragic ever happened to my family, would I see my blog as a blessing or a curse? Part of me thinks that those parents are lucky to have so much of their lives blogged to look back on, but another part of me thinks that the blog would just lead you to relive all the "what ifs" over and over again.
Since beginning my blog I've come across many blogs about loss, illness, and tragedy. Each time it serves as a great reminder that you just never know, and to cherish every second. My thoughts are with this family and that sweet little girl who is going to probably spend her whole life wondering why her siblings died and she survived. Heartbreaking.
