The Club No One Wants to Join

You all know I am a member of a club. There are way too many members of this club. It's the club that no one wants to join. This week we got a new member. Heather and her husband Mike lost their dear Maddie very unexpectedly on April 7th. I read about it the day it happened and just cried. It has taken me a couple days to be able to post about it here.


Please pray for them. Pray for peace in their hearts. Pray that their empty arms will be comforted. Pray that throughout the next...oh forever...they will feel their sweet Maddie near them.

My heart is aching for them. I know the pain, the anguish, the questions, the sound of silence in your home, the empty arms, the physical and emotional pain, the overwhelming grief. Continue to pray for them and don't forget Miss Maddie.

My heart too is broken. I don't even know what to say anymore other than I know she is smiling down on all of us as she is testing out her new wings in heaven.

I can't read too much at one time because it makes my heart hurt so bad. For her parents, for you, for EVERYONE that has lost a child.

I hadn't seen that video, thank you for sharing it. I'm just so sorry. For all who are in the club. You're so right, no one should be in it.

I lost my first angel 5 years ago on April 7. A few days later--April 12 (just like this year) was Easter. The resurrection took on a whole new depth that year...not that I'd wish club membership on anyone, but if it has to happen, the timing is a blessing of sorts. I know it was for me.
