I just felt compelled to do a Saturday post in honor of this sweet little girl, Libby.
She lost her battle with leukemia on Thursday and I haven’t been able to get their family off my mind since. Her dad, Josh is the sweet friend who offered my the reclaimed barn wood for my ORC project. I was shocked he could be offering favors or even functioning with his daughter in the hospital but, that’s just the type of guy he is. I didn’t use the wood for my shelves but, I promised him I would use it for something. Now I want to use for something extra special in their honor.
I don’t know how you go on after losing a child. Just a year ago she was a healthy dancing 3 year old.
As a mom, I can’t imagine having to let go.
There is nothing I can offer this family that will ease the pain nor I can I even begin to comprehend what they are feeling. All I can do is pray that they are finding peace and comfort somehow someway. And I will use Libby as a reminder, forever, to embrace all of the moments with my kids.
Life is precious.
