We attended Rylan's funeral and burial on Friday and it was a rough day. Lots of tears were shed and lots of prayers were said. As much as I think the worst for my self, I am definitely a glass half full girl. So in every situation, including the bad, I try to change my perspective to see the good. If nothing else, Rylan will be free from pain, and she touched more lives in just 5 short months than most people do in a lifetime. Maybe her passing was the wake up call someone needed to seek God, maybe it was the reminder tomorrow isn't promised so they will fix that broken relationship. I can only hope that of the 500 people there Friday and few of them have seen the light through it all. And what a blessing to have those few weeks at home to be a family of 4. Thankful to God it wasn't in the hospital where she would have never gotten to have family pictures done or spent time with her brother. It's all in our perspective friends and God just wanted his child back a little sooner than most. Your prayers for this family would be much appreciated as they mend their hearts in the days to come and pray they draw near to God and not away.
On a lighter note, that same day, Erica (also in Supper Club) gave birth to her baby girl Lula Grace. This is Erica's 2nd child and she of course had another "Hollywood birth" as I like to call it. It was planned, she felt nothing, and out she popped in 7 minutes. Erica had her hair and make up done and the pictures are just sickening how perfect she looked afterwards! :) Lula is such a little cutie and I am so excited for more girls in the group!
We were joking yesterday at dinner that we need to stop being friends because our supper club of 14 girls has had some serious hits over the past year. Atleast we are lucky enough to have each other to help get through the trials. :) I hope you all had a great weekend and we are hopefully on to a happier week ahead!
