A Good Read If Your Heart Can Handle It

I know this link is going to be a little sad for this bright sunny week but sometimes that's just the way life is. And I can't not link this up because it's touched me through and through the last couple weeks that I've been following this story.

In my lifetime I have experienced two traumatic events. The first was when my dad unexpectedly passed when I was 13 years old. The second was when William remained in the NICU for 10 days after he was born with a critical lung condition. In each of those events I remember crying, sobbing even. But I also remember laughing and joking and smiling. A lot of people wondered how that was possible during such a trying time. I really can't answer that. I just know that when I was placed in those situations something bigger than myself came inside of me and gave me peace, calmness, serenity and a few good laughs.

When I read this latest entry from a family who just lost their 7-month-old daughter to heart complications, I feel that he [the father] is in the same place I was. So completely overcome with grief that there isn't anything else to talk about except your extreme gratitude at having known this little baby girl and maybe a few poop jokes thrown in there just to lighten the mood.

  1. Okay, thanks, now I have to go redo my make-up! Just kidding. What a beautiful message he gave everyone. That is the gift that God used little Baby Kate to give the world. Thanks for sharing that. I loved it!
