Thankful Mommy

Some days while at work, I take the time during lunch to eat at my desk and catch up on some of the many blogs I love to read. I decided I would look at Bring The Rain (look on the side, I don't know how to link yet!) and saw that October 15th is a day to remember all the babies that have been lost whether to miscarriage or any other reason. I decided I would start to read through the many (over a 1000) comments left by women, and it struck me. I am amazingly blessed. Granted, it is something I have always known...I have only had two pregnancies and both babies are here for us to love...I have never once planned a pregnancy and had problems getting pregnant (I've never even planned a pregnancy now that I think about it). Sure, they are not at the time that I would have thought was ideal, but we were blessed with them. I am so very grateful that I have not had to personally experience the loss of my child. For all those that have, I will pray for you today and even after. You are all much stronger then I could ever be. For all of us mothers or fathers, I hope that we will love the children we have to pieces and raise them to be thankful for the breath that God has given them.

Oh Julie, I know. I started reading the other day and I couldn't get through them all for lack of time. Isn't astounding how many people have suffered this horrible loss? I am with you...both of mine unplanned by us, but truly planned by God, and like you, I wouldn't change a thing. God knew what we needed much better than we every could!

Hope all is going well. See you Wednesday!
