I was literally shocked tonight when I opened my e-mail. I got the latest prayer line request and found out that another former student has died. I have had about four of them in the last 20 years, but never this close together really. Zach was 22 and died from cancer of the liver. He was one of my fifth graders, actually in the last class I had at the Catholic school. I was pregnant with Jonathon the year I had him. We spent countless hours sitting side by side at my table doing math.
Please remember him and his family in your prayers.
As bad as things sometime seem for me I guess I need to take a look around and see all the things I have to be grateful for in my life.
Have a good week.
