My Heavy Heart

I can’t quit thinking about this.  It has really consumed my thoughts since I got the news, so I thought I’d write about what is on my mind. Maybe that will help.

Yesterday I woke up to a text message letting me know a student I just had in class this last semester had been in an ATV accident on Memorial Day and had died.  He was 13 years old. 13. So young. Too young. He had so many friends; I know he will be missed.  I can’t even imagine what his family is going through right now.   I just keep picturing his mischievous smile and that ornery look in his eye.  He was so full of life. 

I just keep hugging my boys and telling them I love them.

  1. Oooh I am so sorry. Your post caught my attention because the very same thing happened to a high school friend of mine on July 7. Christopher was also 13 years old. It breaks my heart for his mother and brother.

    I will say a prayer for the family of your student tonight as well. Hugs.
