As I sat and listened to another horror story of an 8th grader losing one of their parents, I am so thankful that I grew up with both of my parents.  I can't imagine losing one of them at any time, but especially during the tough middle school years where everything is awkward, nothing works right, everyone hates you at one point or another, etc.  I pray every night that I am blessed with the years to be around while Abby is growing up.  I constantly worry that if something happened to me, she would never understand how much I loved her, or even know about the little things - making sure her favorite blanket is on her bed at night, being certain to have a little snack when I pick her up from school because I know that she's hungry after playtime on the swings, picking out jeans that are softer than the rigid jeans because she can't run as well in the stiff ones, etc.  It's the little things that these kids are going to miss out on from not having a parent around that just breaks my heart. 

So...if anything happens to me, be sure to tell Abby that in every little moment of my day, I did or thought things that were particular to her and only her.  I hope that someone is around to remind these kids of that with their parents.
