A Tale of Life's Unfairness

Two years ago today one of my best friends lost her fight with Leukemia.  It seems like just yesterday I was 7 months pregnant trying to make it to her funeral..which I missed, thanks to US Airways and their HORRIBLE customer service.  We were pregnant with our babies at the same time, it was so fun comparing stories and sharing the excitement even if it was her third and my first baby.  

Yep, she was pregnant.
It wasn't fair, the whole thing just wasn't fair and makes no sense.
I still remember the text she sent me that night she was diagnosed, she was going to the ER with what she thought was a bad sinus infection, she had a bad headache and went to the ER for something for pain and relief from what she thought was a sinus infection.
Then I got a text a few hour later saying she was being sent by ambulance to a bigger hospital because the blood work they drew showed she had leukemia.  I had just visited her a month before and she was fine.

She left us just 6 months from when she was diagnosed.
She left a husband and two sweet babies.
I still think of her all the time, when something fun, exciting, hard or whatever happens and I want to call or text her, then remember I can't.
Anytime I see a beautiful ray of sun or a sunset thats breathtaking, I think of CC

She was such a free spirit and never cared what anyone thought. We had so much fun together and it ended far too soon. She really was a beautiful person

I cant wait till the day when we can dance together in heaven
I know she is looking down on us

My goodness. this blog made me weep with sadness for so many. You, her, her husband, her babies, her family. As my Bible study asks, WHY God? Where were you? You KNEW what was going to happen... why didn't you stop it? Something we may never know but you ARE a GOD of compassion. Katie got to spend precious time with her before her diagnosis, when she was still free-spiritied. You knew the end and made it quick so there was less suffering for everyone. You Knew and YOU were THERE... She is now with the one that stayed in heaven for her to love when she got there. May her other 2 never forget the Love she had for them.

I can't imagine how tough it is to go through losing your best friend. Prayers for you and her family too. It's so hard to understand what life throws at us sometimes but it's always great to know GOD is with us always and forever.

Oh how sad! I hate cancer soooo bad! I have lost both my parents to cancer and to think of a child or someone as young as your friend have to fight something like that breaks my heart. God bless the children, family, and friends she left behind.

Goodness this made me weep too! Praying for all of you guys!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
