I can’t imagine losing a child. My heart and prayers go out to a local Pungo family who lost their four-year-old this past week. For anyone wanting to help out I have attached a link to the news article and a link to the church that is accepting donations: https://tinyurl.com/y8kb7883
It took a few days before I could write about this tragedy. The news has been full of division these days with the government shutdown and the focus on two very divisive parties. Back to unity… as I drove to my daughter’s horse show yesterday in Pungo, or God’s country, I passed hundreds of blue ribbons. They were displayed on mailboxes, front doors and tied to light poles. There were blue balloons where ribbons were absent. As much as it tugs at my heart to scroll my facebook news feed, it is comforting to know how much the family appreciates the support.
Over the past few years, there have been quite a few families in our community that has lost children. I admire the strength I have witnessed of them, the courage to pull together and the faith they display.
