Life is so precious!
16 month old boy in his stake who died in a household accident, and young father who (from Pleasanton, CA where I grew up) was 27 years old who also passed away in his sleep about a week ago. Life is so short. It can change so quickly. What I wouldn't give to be able to be able to have hugged and given Andrew so many more snuggles and kisses. He is so perfect! My heart hurts so much for these families and the hurt they are feeling. I remember the people who wrote to me that also have angels all said it was so hard but time helps. It has helped. The Gospel heals and has blessed us with comfort that I feel like I have found a new normal. I'm grateful for this time of year and the opportunity we have to remember the birth of the Savior and work to act as He would. Please take the time to hug and love and appreciate your kids, spouses and families. Life is so precious and we thank Heavenly Father every day that he blessed us with being part of Andrew's precious life.
