This is why I blog...

I just received a phone call from a very old and dear friend of mine. She was calling to tell me of a mutual friend of ours who had just been tragically killed in a car accident. Her name is Lindy Davis Ross. I haven't actually seen Lindy in years, but we have kept in contact through blogging and facebook. Lindy and her husband Kyler, have 3 beautiful children, 4 years, 2 and, 8 months. I can't imagine what her husband and other family members must be going through and feeling at this moment. There are so many words I want to say, but can't find the words to say them.  I just went on to her blog and saw her sweet posts about her kids. She mentioned in several postings how much she loves her kids and her husband. What a wonderful treasure they will have of her for the rest of their lives!

I am so thankful for my Savior and the peace and mercy He gives to me every single day. I am thankful for the knoweledge that I will be with my family forever. And that through Him, we are saved. I am so thankful for the Gospel, for the blessing it is in my life. For a Heavenly Father and Savior who know me through and through, and know my every heart-ache and joy. Our time here on earth is so short and we must embrace every minute of every day. It's sad to think that it is sometimes tragedies like this that put our lives in perspective. Tomorrow and from here on out, I am going to love my kids and husband so fiercly they won't know what to do! And when I slip, I know the Savior will be there to pick me up, and put me back on the right path.

I love you Lindy! You will be missed!

So sorry for your loss Marcie.
This was such a beautiful post, life is most assuredly fragile and short, so short that there is no time for anything but love.

As terrible as her loss is (one that I cannot imagine.)-what a gift she has left behind to those she loved. That is the legacy of a beautiful life. You couldn't have said it better.
*hugs* to you,

My mother called me this morning to tell me. My heart aches for her husband and kids and of course the Davis family so much I feel sick. I saw Lindy in February and also kept in touch. She was simply marvelous and beautiful in every way! Thanks for the uplifting spiritual post.
