Earth Shattering, Life Altering events.

I'm watching the season premiere of The Bi.g.g.est Los.er tonight and I am crying and sobbing as I'm listening to Abby's story. I've never witnessed such strength and courage before. To have everyone you love, your DH, DD, and 2 week old precious newborn ripped from you in such a tragic event is so catastrophic and cataclysmic - I cannot even imagine. I don't understand why it had to happen. I don't understand why people, good people, are put through such trials and tribulations. Until now, my earth shattering event has been this road to become a mom. But after hearing Abby's story, it hit me that just because the journey to become a mom is successful, it doesn't necessarily always mean a happy ending. I'm sure there is a reason God wrote these events in her Life book - but right now, I can't accept that those beautiful children had to die and her hubby had to leave her side. It's just all too sad.

Needless to say, I'll be rooting for her this season. :(

  1. Go team Abby! I was in tears as she told her story. My close friend lost her fiance 6 months before their wedding in a boating accident..they had a 2 year old son, and now a friend is dying of cancer at 31 and will leave her son & husband behind...simply heartbreaking. Bad things happen to good people, so we have to remember to live in the now because tommorrow may never come.

  2. Isn't it just horrible?! We had a get together to watch it with friends/family and I was sobbing like mad. Really puts things in perspective. What an amazing woman!

  3. I just read the story as I do not watch the show. That is absolutely HORRIBLE. I hope she wins.

  4. I'm a BL watcher too, and hers is definitely the story that I was still thinking about this morning when I woke up. Her attitude about the whole thing is incredible.

  5. I too do not understand why bad things happen to good people. I wonder if we'll ever understand?
