in a blink

everything feels right

it takes only one moment

life changed forever

ps:  A fellow classmate of  Peyton’s was killed in a car accident, along with his parents over Spring Break in AZ.  His 9-year-old sister survived and is in critical condition.

Please keep them in your thoughts.

    How very tragic and how very true. That poor young girl and the family at large. Pains me even to lightly ponder on that!

      It is terribly sad – my heart breaks for this family.

    Very moving. Sorry to hear about the loss, tragic.

    • 5. words4jp  |  April 1, 2014 at 4:38 pm

      It is truly heartbreaking.

    What a tragic thing to happen! Praying for all.

    oh my I prayed! In a blink is so true!

    😦 My heart aches… I’ll keep them in my prayer.

    It is a very difficult situation, and nothing much that we can do but hold the prayer in our hearts. Somethings just seem so incomprehensible…. XX

    Tragic! My heart aches for them. I will be praying for the young 9 year old girl. Your poem is powerful!

    Very very sad news. It is very painful to read such even if I do not know the family personally. It changes lives in a blink. So much grief for no reason.

      When I received the email from my sons school, the first words in my mind were how can this happen – in a blink of one eye, lives have changed forever.

  • 14. Dom DiFrancesco  |  April 1, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    How sad, I hate to hear that kind of thing.

      I just received an email from the school. They believe it was a drunk driver. In a truck – speeding, crossed a median on the hwy – both the truck driver and their passenger were burned beyond recognition. The truck blew up into flames. I will am sick to my stomach.

    this is so powerfully poignant and brief….very like life.

  • 17. Skye @ TheSanctuaryofMyHeart  |  April 2, 2014 at 11:37 pm

    I will be praying for that sweet little one and for Peyton’s heart, as well.

    Heartbreaking…. (Hugs)
