A horrible thing happened this weekend.
My friend died. It's hard to even type the words now.
She was young, she was beautiful and she was pregnant.
She didn't wake up one morning.
It's been a hard weekend. Lots of tears.
They just sort of burst out of you for a moment and then they are gone.
We are all reeling. Ann was loved. And we miss her already.
My head has stopped spinning for a moment and I remember,
I remember the love that I have for my Savior.
I remember the sacrifice he made.
I remember that this is not the last of my good time with my friend.
That we will meet again and laugh and craft and make Chocolate Easter Eggs in Heaven.
Because lets be honest, there IS chocolate in Heaven.
When I think about Ann now, where she is, where she is going, I am calm.
At peace. I know she is safe, I know she is loved.
I think about her family and her friends here on Earth and I am sad.
Of all that they will miss without her.
I will be strong. I will show love. I will not forget.
I will have a little girl play with my little girl often.
I will have a sweet man over for dinner with us.
Just as I would if Ann were here.
