There is no pain greater than this; not the cut of a jagged-edged dagger nor the fire of a dragon's breath. Nothing burns in your heart like the emptiness of losing something, someone, before you truly have learned of its value. Robert Salvatore
I don't know how many of your have heard about this tragedy but I wanted to share it with you. Stephen Curtis Chapman's five-year-old daughter Maria was accidentally hit by an SUV in the family's drive way and killed. The driver was one of her older brothers.
I was a huge fan of SCC when I was a teenager and we recently bought the Christmas album that featured his three youngest daughters (one of whom was Maria).
The girls are never allowed to play in the front yard unless I am with them - but they do like riding their bikes in the driveway. They are very good about stopping before the street, but...
I am seriously considering what Meredith at Like Merchant Ships just did in response to this tragedy.
