Dealing with Tragedy

My post is short today.  It's been awhile since I have updated and on my last post I mentioned that the June Nativity was coming.  I hope you all understand that it will be further delayed.

A dear friend, our Bishop at our church, who my husband serves with closely, is in the midst of a major tragedy.  He has lost his teenage son to an accident.  While there is little we can do, our family is hurting greatly.  Our efforts and time are being focused on serving and helping this family and those others that are in our ward and community who are also hurting because of this tragedy.

If my readers are at all the praying type, prayers would be appreciated for this family.  And, I appreciate your patience as I take a few more days off away from the blog.

Life is truly precious.  Hug those around you.  Hug them tight.

Sincerely,
Amy

P.S.  - If you have placed Etsy orders in the last week, most of them have been shipped.  All others, including bulk orders, will still go forwarded as we have communicated.  Thanks!

I am so deeply sorry to hear this and am praying that our Father, who is unlimited in what He can do, will return this precious soul to the family who loves him alive and well. May He comfort all those who are suffering as only He can. God bless all of you.
