I got an e-mail last night from my daughter's teacher saying one of her classmates passed away. When I told her, her face crumpled, and we sat and held each other while she cried. I wish so much that I could protect her from the sadnesses of life. In some ways, she's so innocent, but in others, her understanding is deeper than anyone would guess. She has so many challenges. There are things she'll never understand, never be able to do. But she understands death and grief. That just seems so unfair.

My heart goes out to you and her.  My Godson/cousin has downs and went through this same thing a few years back.  He also had a life threatening illness and we almost lost him around the same time.

The chocolate helps. A lot. :)
cool. and the best part about virtual chocolate is that it can be any brand you want, any flavor you want and it doesn't have any calories.

As someone who spends a lot of time at a desk, I value the no-calorie treats. (You can read that as though it was said around a big piece of virtual chocolate, because it was.)

That is difficult to deal with without having special needs! She must be sad for her to think about.... Is she talking to you about it? I will pray for her.(I have two daughters with special needs).

She's expressing her emotions, but she isn't able to put a lot of them into words. And of course, she's been at school most of the day. The other kids have had time to adjust (we were away for a few days), so the edge will be off the initial grief there. Maybe that will make it easier for her. Thank you for your prayers for my daughter.
