**Update: Lydia was released from the hospital last night, late. She has a few broken ribs, a bruised lung and I am sure a broken heart.

There has been a tragedy in my family tonight.

My cousin, Mary, was killed in a car accident and her sister, Lydia, has been sent by life flight to the hospital.

Mary was so young. Lydia is young. There are no words for how I feel right now.

Please pray for:

Lydia, as she processes what has happened.

Anna, the youngest sister to have understanding.

David, their father, to find peace, understanding and strength.

Karen, their mother, to find peace, understanding and strength.

My whole family, as we try and process this tragedy.

I know that God has a purpose and a plan for each and every life on this earth. I know that. But in a time like this it is so hard to see through the tears, to understand that this loss on earth is Heaven's gain. Hard.

Tonight, I held my babies tight as I was reminded that they are only on loan to me by my Heavenly Father. That, no matter what, they are a part of God's plan.

Right now, my plan is to make for sure that they know I love them and give them everything I have...


  1. You and your family are in my prayers.

  2. Thinking of you, Leslee. You are in my heart today. <3

  3. Oh Leslee I'm so sorry, you & your family are in my prayers. I think that's one of the hardest part about having children; knowing that they are only on loan. Be strong, the Lord is with you.

  4. We will keep your family in our prayers. And what a sweet testimony you have, Leslee. And a great realization of your Heavenly Father. I love to feel that from you. You should be Mormon - you'd make a great one. :)

  5. Praying for your family tonight. It's hard to think that such tragedy is in God's plan when something like this happens in your family.

    May He bring peace to you guys.
