Thankful for my children...

A girl I talk to just found out the child she is pregnant with has a birth defect that is incompatible with life. Things like this really make you stop and think about the blessings you have. I am so thankful I have two (mostly healthy) children.

It is so easy to take something for granted. I do it often. I will get upset at my kids and yell. I need to try to find more patience in my life and remember that some people are unable to have children. I have been given a gift from God.

How sad. If she needs a stranger's ear, I've been there. Tell her to go to the loss board at http://themamas.myfineforum.org/index.php

I host that board there.

Thank you I will tell her. I need to drop by the mamas. I haven't been in a while.

Yes, I have thought of the miracle of a healthy baby many times since our friend posted her sad news.

My miracle is currently not asleep but wallering beside me and I can't get upset with it. It's just a baby.

Mine just fell asleep after an hour and a half of fighting. I will have to put them in separate rooms soon but they want to share.
