There are some days where my children drive me crazy. It takes every ounce of restraint to not freak out. But then I am reminded how lucky I am to have two happy, beautiful, healthy children. And for that I am so thankful. I really couldn't imagine losing a child at any age, but especially a young child. Yet, here I was today reading an article about a family who just lost their 11 month old daughter. I don't think there is a parent around who can read something like that and not think about how painful it would be if something were to happen to one of your children. Devestating. Heart stopping. It makes me that much more thankful and grateful and humbled that those are concerns I don't have to deal with and hopefully never will. That article was devestating to me, but it made me that much more thankful when I tucked my children into bed tonight that they are both here to tuck in.

Blessings indeed, they certainly are. I can't imagine the heartache of the family you describe. The pain must become a real part of who you are, as I doubt it truly fades.
