A call for prayer!

I never do this because it's an exercise blog, but she is a sister on this journey, and her loss tears me apart.

You have heard me talk about Jen, the prior fat girl quite a few times here. Her strength invigorates me and reading her daily blog gives me motivation and encouragement. We are on the same journey striving for a healthier lifestyle. She has lost pretty much 100 lbs (today was supposed to be her final check in day) and has always been very supportive of me on my new journey and although we have never met, there is a place in my heart for her.

Everyday after I post my blog, I go check out her blog to see where she is on her journey and how she is doing. She has a lot of followers and it is fun to read people's comments. Even her mom gets in on it, which I loved to read, because she always had something wise/clever/funny or quirky to say. Her mom, even created a blogger account "priorfatgirl's mom" to comment on her daughter's blog. I was excited to check in today, because as of yesterday she had 1.6 lbs left to lose, to reach that 100 lbs lost mark.

Immediately after publishing my measurements blog this morning, I headed over to her blog and was extremely confused. I started reading the beginning of her blog and it didn't sound chipper like usual, so I assumed she didn't make her 1.6 lbs. I read some more and things just got really confusing for me. I had to read that paragraph 3 or 4 times to finally understand. Then I kept reading and immediately started crying.

Yesterday afternoon sometime, her mother (priorfatgirls' mom) was walking one of her grandchildren and was hit by a car. She died on the way to the hospital.

I have a great faith in God and I don't say "everything happens for a reason" because that is heartless in times like these. I think that in any situation, God is present and can calm us all with a blanket of his loving kindness and blessings. I pray this for for Jen and her family during this really hard time--she just lost her mother and best friend. I pray for her father--I can only imagine what he is going through. He just lost his soul mate.

I please ask you to join me to support and pray for Jen, the prior fat girl and her family through these tough times.

OH, that is so horrible. I follow PriorFatGirl, too, but not daily. What a horrible, horrible accident. I'll definitely be praying for her and her family during this horrible time.

I started following Jen after seeing her post comments on your blog. I, too, was confused while reading her morning blog, I couldn't catch on to what she was saying at all. She's been on my mind and in my prayers all day.
