It’s been quite the week

So many things have happened this last week. In the last seven days there’s just been so much. Last Tuesday night my cousin’s 2 month old little boy passed away suddenly. And if a death of a baby wasn’t enough, when Granny heard the news she had a heart attack. She’s still in ICU and therefore Grampa was all alone and needed help (he’s 90 years old), so now the family is trying to take care of him. And then on Sunday a different cousin of mine had to take her little 18 month old baby to the ER because the side of his face was paralysed (Bells Palsy). It’s just been one thing after another. On Thursday we have the funeral in Jaffray for little Jaxson. We’re lucky we have such a close family when we have such trials as these. I know the Lord doesn’t give us more than we can handle, but this week has been very difficult.

There was one good part about this week though. On Saturday my immediate family gathered in the Temple and Dad was sealed to his parents and his brother for eternity. What an amazing experience. I’m so glad that I know families can be together forever.

That's so sad about Jaxson. I hadn't heard until now. A good friend of mine lost their 1 year old a few weeks ago and that funeral was very sad. Though the knowledge that we have because of the gospel is a great help, it is still very hard to say goodbye so soon.

I'm sorry to hear about that too. Losing babies just doesn't seem right. You guys totally win with the cold thing, I'm just a dang pansy.
