"How Do You Replace a Mother?"

(Image found in Google Images)

Do you remember when I mentioned not too long ago that Joe's cousin's wife passed away very unexpectedly?

An autopsy was done and even though all the test results are back, there is no obvious reason why a perfectly healthy, happy 31 year old mother of two would pass away so suddenly.

I hardly knew Zoe, but I sure can't stop thinking about her and even more about the little ones and husband she left behind. I have so many thoughts and emotions circling around this brain of mine, but Joe's cousin, Lori Conger said it better than I ever could on her blog today.

Can I just direct you over THERE today?

I hope you take the time to read it. It's not just about the tragic loss of this woman, but how invaluable each and every mother is. Beautifully written. Thank you, Lori.

You sure know how to pull on a girl's heart strings! First the Sullenger's and now this..... But I'm thankful for the feelings and reflections those posts have left me.

Thanks Evelyn. It's nice to be reminded that we truly are so important to our children. Lori put it wonderfully - mothers cannot be replaced. And that includes me and you. :)

My heart goes out to this family! With all of my many failures, I still wouldn't want my kids to have to face life without their momma! I will be sure to keep you all in my prayers.
