For Preslee's Parents

I think this will be the last post about sweet Preslee. I am still saddened by her passing but feel one last need to draw attention to her parents' blog. A beautiful woman has written and performed a song in Preslee's honor. It is available for download with a $1 donation that will go to her parents. You can find it here.

Thank you for reading and hopefully understanding my need to bring light to this sweet little girl. I feel like I have been busy lately and hope to be posting some craftiness soon. I have made several cards and not taken a picture of one. This is because I am usually throwing them together at the last minute. I am anxious to dig into a scrapbooking kit I got soon. I have been uploading and editing pictures for printing so I have some good material. So many memories to get documented!

Broken Hearted

I am sad to update that little Preslee lost her battle here on Earth and is in God's loving arms. I posted about her the other day if you want to go to her parent's blog.

I know I shouldn't be sad about the fact that she is in Heaven now, but I am. Terribly sad. I feel as if I lost a child. Tears have been flowing for days now, thinking about the anguish of this little angel and her parents. I don't even know them! I am trying to find a sense of peace in all of this and I know it will come at some point, but for now, I am DEVASTATED!!!!! I am shocked by the amount of tears I have shed. It's moments like this, I just feel like I can't handle reality. It seems as though every which way I turn there is sadness, loss, pain, and unanswerable questions. And I know it's times like this when I need to also look around and see all the good and happiness that is out there. And I wouldn't trade my reality for anything. But dammit, I am just so upset about this little girl!!!! Sorry for the crazy rant. Just feel the need to get it out there in order to help myself heal from this loss.

A friend directed me to this song by Amy Grant. It's beautiful! And I think will help me.

A Little Girl In Need of Strong Prayers

I don't know if anyone reads my blog, but if you do, please please PLEASE take a moment to send your prayers to a little girl named Preslee who is struggling to heal from a near drowning. I stumbled upon her story while blog hopping here. I don't know this girl or her family or the gal who writes the blog on which this was discovered. But I can't recall a time where my heart has ached so immediately and I have become overwhelmed with a need to pray with all my might. So please, if you have time, check out her parents' blog. And if not, please just take a small moment of your day to send prayers Preslee's way. Thank you!
