BOY, HAS THIS BEEN A WEEK!!!
I just received an email from my 4 year olds school. It seems his classmate, Chloe, passed away. Chloe had been daignosed about a year and a half ago with a brain tumor. She and Jake were about the same age. When I saw her in December at a birthday party she was much smaller than the rest of the kids. She didn't have the drive to play, and didn't speak much.
I cannot go into detail all her parents felt, witnessed, experienced or the nights they didn't sleep thinking about and praying for their child. I don't know those details. All I know is Chloe was a sweet little girl whose life was cut way too short and her family is doing the best they can to survive.
Just last Sunday my husband and I were getting ready for bed. He turned to me out of the blue and said "we are so blessed." He is not your normal sappy guy, in fact I cannot tell you the last time he used the word blessed. I asked him what he meant by that. He said "I cannot image what my life would be like without those boys." Despite any hardship we may have encountered to get them here or since they arrived, we are blessed.
How blessed are you?
