whyMommy aka Susan Niebur
And that's okay if my friend, or if you, don't understand. It's hard to understand.
But see, we KNEW "whyMommy" her through her blog Toddler Planet. We read her hopes, her fears, and her funny stories. She read my blog and commented several times. We shared a religion and I had a religious experience in her presence. I even ran in to her in the thrift store one time, for God's sake. Don't try to tell me that wasn't divine intervention !!!
On Sunday in church, we sang a hymn and one line referenced "falling into the comfort of the arms of the Lord." For a long time, I prayed for physical healing, for new treatments, for more time for whyMommy to have with her family. Then I added more prayers for comfort, for peace. But this past Sunday in church, that line stuck with me all that day and I prayed that she would feel the comfort of the arms of the Lord.
There are many, many other bloggers out there who can write about her far more eloquently than me. So, I'll just say this.
She had an impact on the way I mother my girls. I will never forget her. I will always remember her family in my prayers.
