Sometimes we need a reminder...

>> Sunday, February 8, 2009

Some times we need a reminder that our lives are not so bad. Our lives are full of stressful events, father in laws peeing on our couches, cramps, children driving us crazy, weight that never wants to come off and my list could go on for a long time. And then I stumbled across this blog and cried my heart out. Who are we to complain when mothers are holding their babies to their breasts trying to memorize ever last feature, eyelash and baby fresh smell that is her daughter for as she holds her she is dying with every breath she takes.

Do not go read this if you are not in the place to appreciate the heartfelt journey this mother had to go through, do not read this if you are not in a place that you can handle it right now.

Read this if you have been feeling that nothing could be worse then your life right now because even now as the tears fall on my computer keys for a woman I have never met, I know how lucky I am that my daughter will be walking in that front door soon enough to drive me crazy for another day.

Paula, couldn't go there tonight. Plus I know all about pee in my recliner.

The warning isn't enough. I needed a box of Puffs...the huge box. Yes, we need a reminder. I know I am blessed. I saw my own two grown children over the past week. I noticed I still love all the same sensations I got as a new mom...the touch of their skin, their smiles, their scent, the feel of their hair, the twinkle in their eyes. Oh yes, I am blessed. I will be praying for that mother.
