"Why my child? Why my family? Why did my child have to die?" These are valid questions that we all ask. We're discouraged from asking these questions because there are no valid answers. BUT, until we wrestle with these questions we will never be able to move from this part of grief. "Why did this happen?" We will never know -- at least not in this life. But, for me, it helps to know that others have walked this painful journey and have lived to tell it. In no way does it give me relief from my pain, but to know that others are walking this journey helps me. Above all, I continue to ask God to keep my heart from turning to stone. I want to feel life -- even with my pain. God bless all who are asking the question "why" today. It's the most painful question we will every ask. It's so hard to accept the fact that life is not fair. Bad things really do happen to very good people.
