After getting home from work today I learned of a childhood friend that committed suicide this morning.
My heart aches for his parents and his sister. Having children of my own, I can only imagine how terrible it must be to endure this. I look at my sweet little boy, smiling and watching TV, and it hurts to think of him growing older - where I can't protect him. I can't make his decisions. I can only love him.
Please pray for this family. The weeks and months ahead are going to be so hard.
