Amazing story...

I was reading a blog that I follow of a friend of mine and read this story. It is a woman's amazing tale of emotional survival. Although I didn't meet this woman, just reading her account really touched me. It forced me to remember that no matter how rough one of my days seem, there is always someone out there struggling with deeper problems.

I'm not sure how I would be able to cope if I were in her situation- the loss of an infant, then a husband shortly before the birth of another child. Wow. I can't even begin to imagine the grief.

I believe that some people (or some people's stories) are brought into our lives to teach us something. I don't know what that story was meant to show me, but I do know that it made me think about just how grateful I am to have 2 healthy boys and a healthy husband in a happy marriage.

Take a minute to read this woman's story. It is truly incredible.

All I could think of when she was telling her story was how lucky I am, and I guess, how it is possible to survive when the unthinkable happens!
We are so lucky!

Wow...that is love, to make sure her little boy does not remember her as being sad all the time.

Sometimes we become aware of stories like these only to be made aware of our own blessings.
