But when we got home, we discovered some tragic news- a sweet little girl who we know and love lost her life in a horrific accident. My heart broke for our friends-her parents- and for the overwhelming grief that they must be facing. I bawled on and off throughout the night, I could not sleep, and I had continual nightmares. When I awoke this morning I felt both heavy-hearted and haunted by that devastating event.
As I was browsing through the pictures from last night, I couldn't help but be overwhelmed with emotion. I am so thankful the blessing of eternal families. If I didn't have my family I would be so lost. I know that even if by some tragedy I lose someone I love that it will not be the last time we are together. I know that the Plan of Salvation is real and true. And most of all, I am grateful that the Savior made it possible for our family to be together forever.
I have a family here on earth.
They are so good to me.
I want to share my life with them through all eternity.
