I just read about a tragic story over at Adventures in Babywearing.
A precious little girl named Hannah died on Thursday in a freak drowning accident at the beach. Her mother and her aunt are both bloggers. I have just been reading more about adorable Hannah and her baby sister Lily over at her mom’s blog Life with Hannah and Lily. I literally am crying my eyes out, trying to type as the tears hit my laptop. It is too horrific that this little girl is gone and her family is left to try and live without her.
Her mom Rachael wrote about her last morning with Hannah, a sweet snuggle in bed and an excited discovery of a water lily in their fountain. Precious moments. And then the unimaginable happened.
Honestly, I don’t know how I could keep breathing if I lost my child. I can’t imagine what horror and agony Rachel, her husband Brien, and her entire family must be enduring. I am praying for them – and I don’t think I will ever forget their story. And as I remember them, I will hold my son tighter and try to focus on the snuggles and the smiles and let the frustrations of the day slip away. Every time I get my son ready to go to the beach, every time I see him splash in the water, I will remember little Hannah and her baby sister Lily trying to understand why her big sister is gone.
Life can be so brutally painful. My heart is breaking for this family.
If you want to leave them a note or send them your prayers, you can visit Life with Hannah and Lily. I am sure once you see her beautiful face and read their story you also will be in tears for a very long time…
