I just read on Lyn and Leslie's blogs that Bethany at The Great Reduction died from a sudden heart attack. She was in her early 30's. She had a heart condition and needed to lose the weight for her health's sake. She left behind 2 young boys and a husband.
I have never seen Bethany's blog before tonight, and I hate that. I bet she was wonderful. As sad as I am for her family, this has been a bit of a wake up call for me. She was younger than me and obese and she died. I'm going to be 38 years old this summer, and I'm still obese. Am I living on borrowed time? Are most of us? I don't want to wait on Death to catch up to me. I ask that you pray for these boys who have lost their mother, and the husband that lost his wife and best friend. I can't even imagine their pain right now.
