Friday was a beautiful day here in MN! The girls and I were outside enjoying the afternoon. It was only about 52 degrees but it was sunny and we were so happy to be outside!! I stepped in the house for a moment and Sarah came running in "Mom, Mom police". "Yes, honey I hear it too, but they are only driving by, they are not on our street..." until I looked out the door, and right there in front of our house was a squad car with flashing lights. I quickly went outside to find a 13 yr old boy in the front yard right across the street. I asked him what's happening and he said my mom collapsed, she is barely breathing. As I looked up I saw 2 more squad cars drive by our little private drive ( it is very hard to see). So I told Sarah to stay with Anna and I ran to the corner to flag down the police cars, 4 more came and an ambulance. The girls and I waited in our driveway, a neighbor girl was with us. We said a prayer for the mom and the family. They took her in the ambulance to the hospital. Her car was left in the driveway. Everytime I looked at it I prayed for her. I felt very concerned and so hoped that she was okay.
Today... as hubby and I were going to take a walk, the young man (25 yrs old) that now owns the house was there with his wife and their 10 month old son. It was his mom that collapsed, it was his 13 yr old brother that was running in the front yard, it was his father that quickly arrived 20 minutes later. His precious mother died of a ruptured aorta. She was 49 yrs old and has 6 children. The young man that owns the house was her oldest child, the 13 yr old was her youngest, he is devastated, they all are- they are all so young. Please pray for this family. They are in shock, they have lost someone so precious, they have lost their dear mom, grandmother, wife, and friend. She was helping her oldest son clean his new house and helping him prepare for moving in- isn't that exactly what momma's do. We have only just met them but our hearts ache for them.
It was about a year ago that I lost my sweet Momma. She was 83 and I was 49, there is a big difference losing someone at that age compared to what they are going through... and it was very hard for me.
God please bless this dear family, they so need prayers, they need you, dear Lord. Please join me in praying for them. Thank you dear friends!
