Don't know how any of us do this. It is so hard. Went camping for one night with my son and some of the kids and almost couldn't stand it. It just wasn't natural to be there without him. I followed my son home, who had his dads 4 wheeler in the back of his truck not ours
My heart goes out to the family of Keith Scott. Peaceful protest have done some good and its good to see even the national guards giving the citizens of Charlotte warm handshakes and hugs... Then I hear of folks getting shot up in a mall. I pray for a more permanent solution to all this blood shed, violence and pain. The only solution (Matthew 6:9,10)...Come Lord Quickly!

I'm 31married in March. He's 34. He died July 8th flipping his car on the freeway. 6th of July found out I was 11 wks pregnant. I have two other children 6 and 8 from previous relationship.
