Squeeze Them Tight!




I really struggled with writing this entry in my blog today, but I obviously came to the descision to go ahead with it. I recieved a flower order last night for a funeral arrangement for a 6 week old baby boy. Any mother reading this will know immediately that my heart was crushed on many different levels. Did I read extra stories to my girls last night? You betcha, and I am sure I will tonight too. I will lay with them longer as well and maybe there will be ice cream after school today for "no reason except for that I love you". Not that we don't do these things from time to time anyway, but in the daily grind of life, it is easy to get annoyed with the gazzillion questions that are asked, the shoes (piles of them because I have 3 girls) that I am always tripping over, hair acccessories that are everywhere I look (including Hannah Montana wigs), and messy rooms that "I have worked so hard to make pretty for you!" Refereeing the cat fights that ensue between the three of them can make me feel like I need an IV of sauvignon blanc inserted directly into my arm. I LIVE for my girs, as frustrated as they may make me on a daily basis, but the truth of the matter is that just seeing their precious faces each morning when I wake them is the thing I cannot imagine living without. I know that I am blessed beyond reason to have had 3 healthy, sassy, smart, talented, very good, gorgeous, LOVING girls to fill my life with a joy that has exceeded all of the dreams that I ever had. So squeeze your loved ones a little tighter and longer and give thanks for your blessings.

With Love,

Sanya

my thoughts and prayers are with the family.
my baby boy recently turned 18. exactly one month later he collapsed at a gathering. he said it felt like something exploded in his head. it did. they told us he had a brain tumor. he needed surgery. we didn't know if he would survive it. he did. we waited and waited for the biopsy. it took a month. we finally found out that there were no tumor cells, just tangled veins. there were times we didn't know if he would be coming home. in God's grace he did. always hug your babies no matter how big they are.

Dear Sanya,
My heart is in a million pieces. When you hear of the tragedies around us it really puts things into perspective doesn't it. I cant imagine what that family is going thru right now..I will keep them in my prayers for healing and the knowledge to understand Gods plan for this sweet little boy. All little angels are needed in heaven.
If I know you Sanya, their arrangement of flowers will be one they won't soon forget.
Bless you sweet friend and your golden heart...
