I am horribly saddened to have to write this blog entry, but I feel like it is totally necessary. Through my adventures in the blogging world, I have met many wonderful moms along the way. All of them have touched me in one way or another while they have shared their experiences in motherhood and homeschooling. One mother proved to touch me even more so.
Marsha, at Our Homeschool and Other Such Happenings, not only offers wonderful insight into her homeschool experiences, but her style of writing is very fun to read (you can read more at Heart of the Matter.) She always has such a great sense of humor that has always been hard to ignore. What I most treasured from reading her posts was the love and passion she radiates for her family, especially for her darling little sons. I especially connected to Marsha because, like her, I also have a couple of darling little sons that happen to be similiar in age.
I was very shocked and overwhelmed, though, this past weekend when I stopped by her blog and learned of the tragedy that happened to her little 3.5 year old whom she refers to as “Dozer” on her blog. The dear little boy drowned last Tuesday evening. All I could think about was my dear little C, and what kind of pain Marsha must be feeling.
I know Marsha is a devout Christian. From the updates that other friends have provided on her blog, it is very apparent that Marsha is pushing forward with a faithful Christian attitude. She realizes that her dear son is in the most beautiful and amazing place of all- at home with our Heavenly Father. I am sure that having the comfort of the Lord helps, but I am also sure that dear Marsha will still have a hard road ahead. This is why I ask you to please add her and her family to your prayers.
There is a wonderful tribute to little Christian, aka Dozer, at Heart of the Matter.
