31 Day Photo and Post Challenge - Day 18

Day 18 - something you're afraid of

I think my biggest fear would have to be losing my family. I could never imagine losing one of my children. I have the deepest heartfelt sympathy for parents who never get to hold their child in their arms again. The finality of it is heart wrenching for me. It's not a big secret that I read tons of blogs, and some of these bloggers have lost their child to serious illness or accident. Sometimes they were already bloggers, and other times they start blogging to help get through the intense pain that losing a child brings. As I read their words my heart aches for them and I can feel the pain coming off the screen. I long for them to find some kind of joy in their lives again. Not to forget their child, never ever would I wish that on anyone. Just something to help ease the pain so that they are stronger today than yesterday. So that getting out of bed is possible. So that they can feel the support they have found through this infinite space of the internet.

Losing a child would be horrible, and it is truly my greatest fear.
