I have heard enough bad news for one week. I seriously think that there should be a limit on the amount of bad news one person can receive in a certain time frame. Thankfully none of the news directly affects me, it just breaks my heart for those friends and loved ones of mine that are dealing with these matters. Here are just a few:
My Mum's friend Judy was shot in the back by her husband during an argument. You can read the articles here and here. My Mum was able to talk to her today. She is in a lot of pain and has a chest tube as the bullet went through her lung and is sitting next to her spine so they are unable to remove it. She is depressed and worried about what will happen to her husband. How very sad.
Our neighbors dog went in for a minor surgery to have a cyst removed and was found to be full of cancer so they had to have her put to sleep. Little S is so upset, he used to 'walk' her and play with her almost every day. She was a very gentle yellow lab.
I'll try not to make this one confusing but Teen's girlfriend (on and off for 3 years) her brother-in-law's brother was killed in a car accident yesterday morning. You can read that article here.
I just got a phone call on our church prayer that one of the girls in my Sunday school class' father just passed away.
So I have had enough for one week. How about if you share some good news with me in the comments.
