Our friendship started in heaven....literally. It was born out of the deaths of our children, my Brooke and her 11 month baby boy, Kael. I'm not sure of the exact date when Dawn and I met but on January 7, 2011, my heart grieved for this young mother. I did not "know" her that day, but I knew her pain. I knew the pain that gripped her heart to where it felt as if it would never heal. I knew the loss her arms felt to never again hold her son on this earth. I knew of the tears she wept to the depth that she could not breathe. I knew of the prayers she cried to the Almighty God. I knew.
I called her and we arranged a meeting time.
Our friendship continues today. I feel like I probably benefit from it more than her. See, Dawn is a godly woman who is daily reflecting Christ. She believes God and takes Him at His Word. She trusts even when her days are hard. Her daily walk takes her closer to the feet of her Savior. She is a reflection of His love and I am honored to call her my friend.
