Initially I logged on to rant about what a sad day it was in the world of San Diego sports today, but this put it all into perspective. I don't know this family but I encourage you to read their story. I stumbled across their blog about a week ago. All you really need to know is that their daughter, Copeland, was born almost two weeks ago with Trisomy-18. The Lord took her home on Wednesday. If you only read one post, make it the one from today titled "home".

While I watched the video, Garrett crawled up into my lap for some Love-Love which is 14 month old code for snuggling. If you know him, you know he doesn't cuddle often. He laid his head on my chest and as I watched and read the post I couldn't help but hold him tighter than ever. By the end I was crying and he picked up his head to see what was wrong. With his big eyes staring into mine I realized that while being a sports fan certainly passes the time, losing is never going to be the end of my world.

Like I said, I don't know these people personally, but we are all one family in Christ. I'm sure they could use your prayers.

  1. Being the emotional preggo that I am, I've already cried my eyes out for most of the day yesterday, and I'm not sure I'd like to voluntarily do it again today. But, I will try to take your advice and read a post later this week. I'm already sad just reading yours.
