Our Precious Gifts

Abbi and I went to Trent Duval's viewing tonight. For those of you who didn't know Trent, he was an AMAZING boy! He fought a long, hard battle with Leukemia. He was only 8 years old with a testimony of a 20 year old. He was an amazing little missionary. I was glad that Abbi was talking to me about random things. She completely distracted me. I didn't want to be emotional for the family's sake. However, the second I walked out the door I completely lost it.

I'm not sure who's child was crying hysterically..but that brought back the memories of me being only 5 years old, attending the viewing of my little friend Mandy.

Remember what a precious gift our children are, and hug them a little tighter!!
