Tim Bosma: Broken Hearts Everywhere

Pin It Now!

It just doesn't make any sense.

It's heartbreaking. It's scary. It's unbelievable.

My heart dropped the moment that I heard that they found him today. I didn't know him, but hearing of the gruesome details of his discovery made my heart break as if I had known him for years. I'm sure we all saw ourselves in him, in his wife or in his young daughter.

That could have been Terry, I thought. That could have been me. Flashbacks of contacting people on Kijiji, driving to their house alone, just me and my cash in hand, walking in the front door of strangers homes and picking up my new items, now gives me chills. No one ever expects simple acts like this to turn into what they did for Tim. No one ever expects that people could be so evil or heartless.  

What does a mother now tell her 2yr old daughter about her daddy? How do you continue on?
I have no idea.

We've all be watching closely and praying for his safe return as the week continued on. But today hearts are broken everywhere for Tim, for his family, for his friends and for anyone who ever knew him.

As news of his disappearance, then the terrible news that came today, flashed across my television screen, I had the same reaction as everyone else did I'm sure. Disbelief. Shocked. Heartbroken.

I then remembered a quote that I once heard, from Mr Rogers of all people. He said:

"When I was a little boy and something bad happened in the news my mother would tell me to look for the helpers. You'll always find people helping, she'd say. And I've found that that's true. In fact that's one of the best things about our wonderful world". -Mr Rogers.

There are helpers here within this tragedy. You don't even have to look for them--they're everywhere. They're all over Facebook pouring their broken hearts out to the family. They're rallying around this family, holding their hands during their darkest hours. They're raising money, bringing meals, praying and loving them through this nightmare.

But it's still heartbreaking.

Holding my babies and Terry tight tonight.

  1. I love that quote so much. This story is ridiculously sad. It's just a truck. Take it and spare his life.
