I just heard that a woman, I know, Shirley, died this morning, driving home from Mass with 2 of her 8 daughters. Not sure of the injuries with her daughters, but please pray for her soul and her husband and family. She was a wonderful woman, full of faith and love. Truly beautiful inside and out.
I can't help but think of her and smile, she was that good. (through my tears, that is)
I am going to a women's conference tomorrow and she was one of the women who put together the whole thing every year for the last 6 years. Her daughters helped every year too. Her husband sat in Adoration every year during the conference.
Give your kids extra hugs today. That's what I keep thinking. Cherish every moment, we do not know when our last will be. Always be ready. Always be ready. Our souls must always be ready, for it is not here that we were made for.
***UPDATE**** her 2 youngest were with her, they are 7 and 10, they are fine. Shirley slid on ice through a stop sign, onto a highway and was hit by another car (the driver of that car is ok). Shirley was expecting her first grandaughter this month.
Eternal rest grant unto Shirley, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her
May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
