Heavy Heart Tonight

My heart is so heavy right now. I was just on Facebook to check a message real quick and noticed that a lot of people had posted about praying for the Westlake family. I did some digging to find out what was going on. I found out that she's 17 years old and then my heart dropped as I read that she was killed in a car accident. Her name is Danielle Westlake and I ask that you would pray for her family and friends. My mind quickly goes back to laying in the ambulance wondering if Cale was still alive...I think about how our family and friends felt when they received the call...Cale's life was saved that night, but Danielle is home with Jesus. My heart is full of pain for everyone that has to continue life with out her.

As for our day, Cale did good. In speech Patty was working on sequencing with him. She asked Cale what he would need to do to make toast. Cale said "chop the meat", "for toast?" Patty asked. C: "yeah" P: "then what?" C: "put it in the toaster" P: "what is toast? Is it a banana, orange, bread, or meat?" Cale said "meat." Hmm...

I'm having a hard time writing tonight. Note to self...don't check Facebook before writing blog...

18) From what I read, Danielle knew Jesus. I am thankful that right now she's having a party in heaven. She's being held in the Father's arms and will never have to experience pain or sadness again. I'm thankful that at 17 she is dancing with the angels. I'm thankful that even though I have never met her, I can see by the people that did know her, that she was a wonderful young woman that was a light to others.

  3. My heart is saddened for Danielle's family. I will trust for each of them to rest in Father's loving embrace. I do have to say my heart stopped when I first read the heading of your blog. I thought something happened to Cale. I am grateful it wasn't him. I love you guys, Marion
