Fragile

I am writing this with a sad heart, as I realize how fragile life is. My husband told me tonight that the baby of a coworker passed away this weekend. Thad has been sending me updates of little Nate for about three weeks now and the last update on friday was that Nate was going home soon! He was born with a congenital heart defect, but praise God did not have to have the extensive surgery that all the doctors thought. He was being weaned off his meds and had started feeding. His parents wrote that they had held him for only the fourth time this last week and they were excited about his future. Imagine our devastation when Thad found an email in his inbox....nate is gone.

Our hearts and prayers go out to nate's family..his mom, dad and sister. all those who loved him in his short and beautiful life.
