Love these photos!!! 7th grade for your oldest? How time flies! And I love how the angry bride made the local news. You don't mess with a woman about to get married! haha

Brooke said...

Surely the boys were much scarier back when I went to middle school. How could I have been intimidated by such young-looking innocent boys?

They are both as cute as can be (though I doubt they would appreciate that adjective).

The Empress said...

So beautiful.

I remember reading a post of yours from this summer, and beautiful verse that your daughter was led to, remember?

"I will carry you through ravaging waters."

How perfectly placed this verse is in our lives right now.

I am deeply, deeply sorry:

I wish I could do something. We all wish we could do something.

Kir said...

Hello. I don't know you, this is my first time to your blog and the smiling faces of your children was the first thingI saw. The Empress (who is a dear friend) asked me to stop by and yet I don't know if I have the right words to convey how sorry I am about your loss, your son's smile is like a piece of sunshine and my heart is aching for you and your family. As a mom Of two sons who are still little I am overcome with emotion, I want to say so many things to you, offer words that might soothe the burn of this , but I know it's pointless....you lost your beauitful son...and nothing I say will make that better.
I will keep you in my prayers, I will hold your heart close to mine for a long time, I will remind myself often of you and send you love on Gentle breezes....hugs of comfort to you. I am so so so sorry.

for a different kind of girl said...

Oh, Anna...when I saw the link on Kate's blog, I paused before clicking it and prayed "...please, God, do not let this take me to Anna's site." I didn't want this to have happened to anyone's child, but even though we've never met, I feel a friendship with you, and arriving here today made me gasp and then cry. Anna, my heart is torn for you and your beautiful family. I wish I had words powerful enough to change things, but I don't. I hope the words of all of us who are praying for you and your family is of some strength to you, and that you can feel us lifting you up when you don't feel you can on your own. Your son is a beautiful, charming boy. I am so, so sorry.

Your heartbreaking story came to me via Twitter. We are strangers ~ I'm a Mom of a 24 yr old son from Nebraska. Regardless that I don't know you; my heart aches for you and your family! What a beautiful child, beautiful family!

Life is SO unpredictable. Your photos just go to show how quickly life can change in a matter of moments, hours or a day! Its a reminder to all of us to love one another and live life to it's fullest each and every day!

As I looked at your Blog I notice your own quote from the story about Charlotte: "And today, in whatever situation you find yourself, when you may be thinking as Kathy did, and as I sometimes do, “This is NOT the life I signed up for,” remember that you are never alone."

You are not alone Anna; many people across the internet are praying for you! May God Bless all of you and ease the pain in your hearts!

Stephanie @ dialmforminky said...

Darling Anna,
I am local to you although we have never met and I have never been to your blog before...I heard on the news yesterday about your beautiful son and I cried. I didn't know you were a blogger then...i didn't know how I could reach out to you but I knew I wanted to. To tell you how sorry I am for your loss.
Today I found out you were one of us, a blogger, and at first I resisted the urge to run over here to comment...who am I to you? But then I couldn't help it. You lost your son and nothing else matters. I mean it when I say let me know if there is anything I can do to help you, in any way. My heart is breaking for you and your family. My prayers are with you.

Stephanie Johnson said...

Anna,I'm a fellow monkee and got your blog link from Glennon and I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.

I followed a link from Twitter to find your blog and those wonderful smiling faces.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

My son started 7th grade yesterday and I cannot imagine what you are going through. And now whenever I look at mine, I will think of yours.

Truly sorry.

The news of your loss is shockingly horrible. I am praying for your family. So, so, sorry you are living through this.

Lizbeth said...

There are no words to express the loss of a child. None. Know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Maybe or kids are together. I don't know. I do know how horrible this is and I am sorry.

I've never seen your blog an I've never met you, but the pain of a mother who has lost her child is universal. My heart hurts for you. I will pray for strength, supernatural peace to make those horrible planning decisions, and healing for the broken hearts.

Little Buddha said...

Another stranger who is thinking of you. I wish I could give you something other than an apology. It's nowhere near enough. I wish for peace, that will help you to get up each morning and continue on. Take it day by day, but if that's too much, minute by minute. Know that you are loved and that we're all praying for you and your family. <3

Dearest Anna,
I wish there was anything in the world I could say or do that would stop this horror for you. We have never met, but we are all here for you. Praying for any kind of peace for you and your family tonight.

Susan said...

Dear Anna,
I am so so so incredibly sorry for the loss of your beautiful and precious boy. I am praying for you. I know you from Momastery, we have been long time followers and I had read most of your comments these last few years. I am so devastated for you. I am local and if I can help in any way I am here. Anna, I had my own son die. His name was Joseph and it was very different circumstances, but that doesn't change the fact that I have been through something similar to you. You WILL recover from this one day. God is WITH you, even when you don't feel it and you are not alone. Anna, you and your daughter and your husband will be in my prayers and close to my heart. God has given you an entire community to grieve with you and help you. We love you. If you need to talk or scream or cry or anything, please call me day or night, 571-263-4058. God loves you. I promise.
XoXo Susie Malachowski, a full on Monkee.
