I have no children yet. But from the post "things I hope to do in my life," you know I want them. And from that, I hope I never, ever have to bury a child.
I have been fortunate enough to have little loss in my life thus far. I remember one great-grandparent and her loss, my great Aunt Mary, Touchdown and Benz. I still have all four of my grandparents, my parents and siblings. And now I have this whole extra extended family I married into and care about.
Loss is an inevitable part of life, and unfortunately, when you care about a lot of people you will lose some of them. And it sucks. But I pray and hope and beg and ask and beseech and any other words that you can think of, that I never have to experience the terrible loss of a child, in anyway.
