My heart is aching for the Bodily family right now. Hours ago they lost their husband/father in a car accident. I keep imagining what Katie must have been thinking when she realized her sweet companion was gone. When she realized she would be left alone with those four beautiful boys for the remainder of this life. I have no doubt that their family will be reunited one day. And how grateful I am for the sealing power! But right now I let my tears fall for my friends. I am mourning his loss with them. And as I'm alone tonight, this blog will be the one who hears my sorrow. How I wish I could take the pain from those sweet, tenderhearted boys right now! How I wish I could stop the pain and grief that Katie will endure in this life! Every feeling in me right now feels so cliche. And so trivial. The sadness I am feeling at the loss of a family friend is nothing compared to what they are feeling right now. Please pray for this family tonight. Pray that their hearts will heal quickly and that they will be comforted. Pray that Katie will have strength as she mothers her sons alone. And pray that the boys will be strengthened by the testimony and legacy their father left them. Pray that their testimonies of our Heavenly Father's plan will sustain them and bring them peace. Pray that His spirit will never leave their side.

Oh no. I can't imagine how hard that would be. I don't know them, but I'll definitely pray for them.

This really strikes a cord. A woman I visit taught in Orem, just passed away from a very aggressive cancer and she left her husband, 3 daughters and a son. It is so heart-wrenching to think about and sometimes hard to remember that Heavenly Father knows where we're needed most.

They will be in our prayers, my heart aches for them. What it comfort it is to know of our Lords plan and to know that they will be together again.

Our bishop is obsessed with teaching us how bad things happen to good people. This post is making me just bawl. I am terrified of having to actually live up to my belief if I ever lost one of my precious babies or my husband. I pray for your friends.
