Please say some extra prayers today for the Owens family. Karen Owens posted on Gavin's website early this morning that "Gavin was in his final moments". Even though the Owens have known this day was coming, there is no way that they could be prepared for the pain they will have to endure of living everyday without their little boy.
Later today Gavin will probably be at peace. Please pray that somehow Karen and Adam can find peace too. Also extra prayers are needed for Gavin's big sister Madi. She will be six in just a few short months and has endured more emotional roller coaster rides than anyone should have to.
Karen's post yesterday broke my heart...she asked for more time. When we lose someone we love so much, there has never been enough time. We could never be prepared to let them go. Everyday we all take time for granted, we take the people we love for granted. We never really know when time will be up.
I am not trying to be morbid, I am just stating the truth. We really have no control over time. So the next time you think, "maybe I should take that once in a lifetime trip"...do it. The next time you think, "I should tell my kids how proud I am of them"...do it. The next time you think, "I should work less and enjoy life more"...do it. The next time you think, "I love you"...say it.
Any moment could be someone's last moment. Do you want to spend your time regretting the things that you didn't take the time to do or say. Do you want to waste your energy being mad or upset with someone you love. "Life is short" is such a cliche but, it is so true. Once someone you love is gone from your life you will wish for the chance to say or do these things a thousand times over but, you will never get time back the time to do them.
Pleae remember prayers for the Owens.
