10/9/14 - Gratitude


Let's take a moment to be thankful and ever so grateful for what we have. In the news there has been this young couple from Philly who were pregnant and knew their son had a rare birth defect and couldn't survive for very long outside the womb. They created a bucket list taking him all over town and doing all kinds of things with him before he was born. She went into labor and he was born but died 4 hours later.

I just read this today and was holding back tears. I can't imagine carrying a baby for nine months knowing that he won't survive. These parents are so strong and embraced a tragedy with a bucket list and tons of hope. I pray that Jules and I have a healthy, happy baby as I'm sure any parent does. That's all that matters. Boy or girl whichever we are meant to have is great! Just please let him/her be healthy. We have so much to be thankful for and it's easy to lose sight of it. Sadly, it often takes someone else's tragedy to wake you up so you are grateful for what you do have.

So today let's not worry about the wish list we all have in our minds or the things we hope to accomplish one day.

Let's be thankful for today.
