Cancer, suicide, drowning, car accident, murder. Every mother fears losing her child. We’re supposed to protect our children from the sharp edges of life. Don’t run in the street. Look both ways. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t hang out with that crowd. We hear about other families who face the pain of loss, and we silently give thanks it isn’t us, all the while hugging our kids a little tighter.
A mother is unprepared for the pain of her child’s death. I know. I’ve been there. It’s the worst loss.
But God. Those two words took me through the valley of the shadow of death, to the peace that passes all understanding.
