Because I Need A Break From Packing

So...I've started to throw things in boxes.
I feel weird about it.
I feel like until we have the keys to our house in our hot little hands that I shouldn't do anything...but the planner/organizer/list-maker in me can't help but do it!
*sigh....I don't like feeling weird about things.
We went to the pool today and though it was lovely outside the water was
The girls had blue lips in a manner of minutes and spent most of their time running around the grass so we packed up early. It was a little sad--I'm not really ready for summer to end as our Fall is going to be extremely busy.
(understatement of the year!)
And then something happens that puts every little thing I'm going through into perspective and makes it all seem small.
Please pray for our friends, the *S* family, as they found out they lost their little one on the way today.
(there is nothing more painful than the loss of a little one!!)
My heart is broken for them.
Every blessed minute we've been given is such a gift that we ought to celebrate what we have
all. the. time.
because you never know when it might be gone.
I'm going to go count my blessings now...and pack a few more boxes while I'm at it.
Good night!

Oh, Shelly. My heart is broken for this family, too, and I don't even know them. I am just so sorry for the pain they are having to endure. As you said, there is nothing (that I've faced, anyway) that is more difficult. I will be sure to keep them in my prayers, and you too, as you are a comfort to them (and as you do the million and one things I know you are trying to do before the big move!)
