say yes...

nine thirty last night and lillie and i are two hours into studying for her science exam and only halfway to an a. she wanted me smack next to her and i already hate the day when she no longer wants that so i say yes.

but then she wanted me to make her a coffee. and i say no.




and then? i read this. forwarded it to pat.

and made her a coffee.

try to say yes loads and loads this weekend and make an overflow of good memories. i think it'll matter when we look back on all this, don't you? xoxo.

Whoa. You could have at least warned a girl. I had no idea what I was getting into when I clicked that link. How absolutely, heartbreakingly crushing.

oh no! I'm sorry, mallory! i know...it's tragic. tragic and i thought about it all day and won't forget it anytime soon.

there you go again, breaking my heart, and healing it simultaneously...

Emily said...

So tough. Extra big squeezes for everyone in my life this weekend. And extra prayers for Jack and his family.

That's my IRL friend ... whose son's funeral I went to 6 weeks ago. I've never had such a lump in my throat, or a man cry as hard on my shoulder, as I did that day. With Anna and her husband Tim.

Ugh ... kissing my kids extra hard these days. x

Ugh, to say that made my heart hurt is an understatement. Such a sad story. I agree, give the girl some coffee!

i have never been more gutted by a story in my life. it hits way too close to home.

my girls. you know the line that tore me up? when she wrote something like i warned them about strangers and STDs and all that other stuff and i forgot the creek.

i die that i'm forgetting something, you know? just die.

xoxo

and oh jill. painful, friend.

"when we look back on all this"

oh how the time just flies by and now i realize how much we missed during all those years of saying no or being worried for reasons out of our control in the first place......

Karey, thank you, for your words, and the link...life is too short, painfully for the sweetest.

susan said so said...

it's ALL a risk. yes is dangerous, and so is no.

live is fraught with danger. if we really thought about it, we'd all be paralyzed with fear.

poor family. my heart is broken for them.

xox,
susan

I have been thinking about that story non-stop since you shared it. Crushing is the right word for it...my heart is broken for them & what you said about that line? I feel exactly the same. My heart goes out to them....I can't even imagine the pain. Or I guess I should say I hope I never know that pain. god....

Was bawling my eyes out reading this last night. Glad you linked to it, though, because it certainly gave me some major perspective. Will be praying for their family and friends. Hoping the Beiber thing works out, too.
