There are no words....
It seems here lately, that I can not wrap my head around the abundant loss that many of us have been feeling. I can't understand it, nor do I even try. I know God has his reasons, I just don't know why he would take a little 8mo old baby.....
Please pray for a friend. Kelli lost her 8mo old baby, Maggie on Tuesday. As I understand it, she was tangle up in her baby blanket and suffocated. Please, all you parents out there, dress your baby warm before bedtime and leave the blanket out of the crib. If this teaches us anything at all, let it be to keep those cribs clear of items!
AND never take ONE single day for granted.Hold onto the ones you love, tell them daily(a million times if you can) how much you love them. When you put your kids to bed tonight, give them extra kisses and hugs. Say a little prayer and tell God thank you for giving you such precious gifts. Our kids, they are gifts from God. Make sure they know that!
Last night, as we put our dear son to bed, I found myself not wanting to let him go. I wanted to hold onto him forever. Thank you God for my beautiful baby boy. He's been such a wonderful blessing to us. We cherish him and are so thankful that he is healthy and happy.
