A Horrible Tragedy

This afternoon I got a chilling phone call.

An amazing couple, the Hewitt's, that lives across the street from us are in immediate need of prayer. They are a young couple with two children (3 and 5). This morning she was taking her children strawberry picking and was in a horrible accident involving a motorcycle, another car, and dump truck. The children were both killed, and she is in critical condition. Tonight at 7:00pm there is a prayer service for the family. As a mother, I can not even imagine the pain this family is going through. What tragic loss to lose both your precious angels in one second. This husband and father has a long road ahead of him. We have to pray now that mom makes it, for she is not doing well. When the call came in to me this afternoon, I think I stopped breathing for a moment. What an awful tragedy. Please pray!!!

I just read your post and the WIS article and I'm in utter tears. Tragedies like this seem to hit you even harder when you are a mother yourself. I will certainly be praying for this family.

Thank you for posting this, Brooke. A bunch of people's facebook status said to prayer for this family, but I had no idea what had happened. They are definitely in my prayers. (By the way, I enjoy reading your blog and have been doing so for some time...Brayden is precious!!!)

How awful. I will certainly pray for their family. I could not imagine the pain of losing your little ones and seeing your wife in critical condition!

BTW- I enjoy reading your blog. I found it via Brit's blog.
