My heart hurts. My eyes are welling up with tears.
I just had to tell my little girl (7 years old) that her friend and former schoolmate who has terminal cancer, has taken a turn for the worse and her family does not expect her to live much longer. A good friend of mine is extremely close to the family, her son (8 years old) was "going to marry Sabrina someday". Kristi emailed me this afternoon to tell me that Sabrina's Hospice nurses believe that her passing could come as soon as this weekend, early next week and certainly by next weekend. This child is so sweet and loving. She is also the only child her parents have. They (her parents) adopted her when she was around 2. They have only had 6 years with their precious little girl and now...... I know that it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all but this is just so heartwrenching. We are all sooooo very sad. I keep crying. I keep thinking, what if this were my child? How would I possibly handle this?
I am not religious but have to believe there is a better place waiting for this dear child who is being taken from us way too soon. Cancer is just a horrible, horrible thing. I hope the researchers find a way to cure it soon.
My heart hurts.
