I am Grateful

A friend passed along a blog, that I wanted to pass on, that has really touched me. I spent hours reading it the other night and got pretty emotional. Also, about a month ago I was told of another blog in which a little girl died. While reading both of these blogs it helped me to reprioritize stuff and to look at what really matters in life. I really can't even fathom what they must be going through. Reading these blogs has also helped me to appreciate my kids more, be more patient, and to take the time to love and hug them. Both couples have such amazing outlooks and are totally inspirational to me. Reading these blogs has helped strengthen my testimony and helped me to be more grateful for the gospel. I am so grateful to be a mom and to be given the opportunity to raise such awesome kids!

Thanks for the warning. I followed you links to those blogs and had a bit of a cry-fest myself. Our children are precious and every moment we get with them we have to make count. Thanks for the reminder.

I spent the whole morning crying! Thanks for sharing those blogs. How did you find them? I always wonder if I could be that strong if faced with those situations. I must say that I've been a little more aware of choking hazards and with a swimming vacation ahead Matt and I are refocusing on swim lessons.
