Life is short

Several years ago when a mutual friend asked if I would be interested in volunteering to man a booth at Steven Curtis Chapman (a Grammy award winning Christian artist) concert, I didn’t think twice about it and said ‘YES’ because I knew that he is an adoptive father and raises funds in his concerts for the couples that cannot afford foreign adoptions.

I was given a free T-shirt for volunteering and it said “Shohannah’s hope” to remember the artist’s one of three adoptive daughters from China. Yesterday, I got a mail from another friend with most devastating news. One of Steven Curtis Chapman’s adoptive daughters died in a car accident.

I still have that T-shirt and I was wearing it just yesterday. How tragic it is to lose a child? I cannot even comprehend this. If you have a little one at home, don’t let this day pass by without you telling them how much you love them. Life is short, don’t let it pass on you.
