till we meet again

I have a touch of the weepies tonight.  Partly because I just kissed my 4 year old goodnight for the last time.  Tomorrow I'll have a 5 year old.  Being overly dramatic?  Duh, it's ME, people.

Also because my dearest Danielle's little sister unexpectedly passed away last week.  And being so far from her when I desperately need to hug on her has upped my usual daily weeping levels by 11.  But I want to share what she posted on the facebooks about Natalie, and what we believe.

Natalie is not gone. She has simply left this mortal realm. “In mortality, we are like one who enters a theater just as the curtain goes up on the second act. We have missed Act 1. … ‘And they all lived happily ever after’ is never written into the second act. That line belongs in the third act when the mysteries are solved and everything is put right.”

We know “have a Father in Heaven, who knows and loves us personally and understands our suffering perfectly... His Son, Jesus Christ, is our Savior and Redeemer, whose Atonement not only provides for salvation and exaltation but also will compensate for all the unfairness of life...
The Father’s plan of happiness for His children includes not only a premortal and mortal life but also an eternal life as well, including a great and glorious reunion with those we have lost. All wrongs will be righted, and we will see with perfect clarity and faultless perspective and understanding.”
one of these girls is NOT a Kjar.  Try to guess who.

Good golly I love being a Mormon.  And those gorgeous Kjar girls.  Go love on someone, m'dears.

Such a shame - and I never met the girl. Poor Danielle. That's a shock. Does she need anything?

There is an especially beautiful new angel in heaven today. But it's always too tragic to see the young & beautiful leave this realm. Her beauty is radiant. She will always be felt as much as she is missed.

this is lovely and perfect. i saw the note you reposted on facebook and i just loved the wording on the dress code. very classy and yet encouraging to respect natalie. i'll use that for my own.

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
