On A Sad Note

At church on Sunday, a prayer request went out to a local family who lost their grandson to drowning.

Yesterday at school, they made the announcement and sent home a letter stating that there would be a counselor available if the kids need it.

Light of my life got upset at the whole situation (mostly because others were and she felt she needed to as well) and wanted to talk about it and cry about it yesterday when I got home.

We talked a bit about it and she seemed to settle down.

That news combined with me going away this weekend with my neighbors (without her) is just too much emotionally for her to handle.

Therefore, I haven't had a chance to tell her about S yet. She loves S and it will break her heart to find out that she passed away.

Man, can't she get a break? How much is an 8 year old expected to handle?

P.S. We've had a discussion about what to do if she falls into the creek where we fish. The little boy that died didn't know how to swim (light of my life does) when he fell in a swift moving river. His parents didn't know how to swim either (I do) and no one was wearing a life vest. Such a tragic accident.
