Gracie Girl

My heart has been heavy this past week as I've been following the story of this precious baby girl. Her family had to say goodbye to her today and my heart is aching for them. I'm so thankful they have shared her life through their blog, which has touched the lives of so many. I'm sure it will touch yours as well as you read through her incredible journey. I know the power of prayer can be so strong and I ask you to include Gracie's family in your prayers as I've done with hundreds of others this week.

Even though my heart is breaking for this family, I can't help but feel grateful that I have three beautiful, healthy little girls to hold onto everday. I am so blessed and lucky to be their mother. Stories like Gracie's are so quick to touch my heart and life and seem to inspire me to be a better mother each day. Even though I fail on numerous occasions, I hope at the end of each day my girls know how much I love them. How I wish the world would stop for a day so I could spend it just holding, loving, and hugging my precious daughters for the entire day. No dishes, No laundry, No work, No computer, No chores, No school, No carpool, No Nothing-Just love!

Wow- I don't know if I can handle reading that. I have "stumbled" upon way too many blogs within the past month with babies all less than a year old fighting cancer or other diseases. A couple have even passed away. For some reason I have never been so grateful for my healthy children as well. I don't know why I've read so much of this stuff, but it's a miracle to have and entire healthy family. There is an amazing family (I even spoke to the mom on the phone last week) who are battling their own wars with their baby girl. Check it out sometime. www.famofcookies.blogspot.com I'll pray for this family. So sad!

My friend Magi(who did all our family pictures)Has been taking pictures of this family for years, I think she even did some at the funeral, so I have been reading it too- what a precious baby.

That is sad, my sister had a friend that a child that died of sids last week. It is so sad for the families but it also helps us be more grateful for our health and our children.
