I had a party just this saturday and i only met the mom and dad two days before our party. i learned that her mother passed away that's why she was so late in preparing for daughter's party. I felt so sorry for the mom, she was still teary-eyed while she was narrating how everything happened so fast. But her mo wanted her to continue with the party so they decided to hold it and celebrate it.
After the party i hugged her and told her to keep in touch and to hang in there. I know it's hard to lose someone you love. Just the thought of it makes me cry but God has a reason for everything and God is in control.
Thank you Lord, that in my own little way, you used me to somehow bring smiles to their faces on their daughter's birthday. :)
