Blog Challenge: Day 6 — Something you hope you never have to do…

This one makes me extremely sad to even entertain, but it would be to never have to bury my child.  I think every parent shares this sentiment and it’s one that touches us to the very core.  A small part of my heart breaks whenever I hear or read stories about children dying and I can’t begin to comprehend the pain that parent has to go through in order to make arrangement for their child.  There is no greater sorrow than that and one I truly hope and pray I never have to go through.  I only have one child, so while the loss of any child is awful, I think the loss of an only child carries an even greater burden.

Damn! I’m emotional now!

 

Yea, I said it!

  1. I agree, Blu, and this is one of the things I hope to never ever do in life. I watched my Dad’s mom bury two of her sons and I swear she could not handle it. Like you said, the thought alone tugs at one’s heart.

    • I actually thought my mother would be a candidate for having to bury a child, but fortunately, it didn’t happen and I’m glad it didn’t. As I said, not a thing any parent wants to do regardless of how their child lived.
