I Could NEVER Begin to Imagine

I cannot get the Cruz Family out of my mind.  I cannot begin to even understand what they are going through.  I cannot stop thinking of Rylie

Rylie is such a beautiful little girl who has been suffering through Neuroblastoma.  A seriously horrible form of cancer.  She is Emily's age. 

She is now in her final hours on this Earth.  My heart is broken for this family.  I'm praying so hard that the next few days are filled with love and smiles and Rylie is kept as comfortable as possible.  I wish I could wrap my arms around this little girl, her sisters, and her parents.  I'm praying so hard for peace in that family.  I could NEVER begin to imagine that heartache.

I'm asking all of you to take a few moments out of your day to pray for the Cruz family.  They need all the prayers they can get as they go through the next few days and hours. 

Now take the time to hold your children close.  Really close.  Rylie went from a normal 2 year old to being diagnosed with this horrible disease and starting her journey down this difficult road.  No matter how crazy your children drive them.  Hold them.  Let them know you care.  Be their friend.  Be their mentor.  Be their parent.  Love.  Laugh.  Build a solid future.  You NEVER know what life has in store for you.

That story? My worst nightmare. An accident would be horrible, but I'd at least know what happened - cancer, I know, is just horrible biology.

Such a sad story - I'll have the Cruz family in my thoughts all day, and, likely, for a long time coming.

OMG!!! I just clicked on their page and found that little Rylie has gone to Heaven. My heart is so heartbroken for this family also! I too, could never imagine such a loss. It just isn't natural for a chold to go before their parent's, especially at such a young age,. What a precious little girl. God will take good care of her. :o(
