I feel very blessed


Always at this time of year each year, it jogs up memories of when My daughter was born. The difficult pregnancy I had, her entry into this world so very early. Today especially I have reflected on this, as I do some birthday shopping for her. Tonight I am going to a planning meeting for my class reunion next year. I was just reading about a classmate who is going to be there and how she had a preemie who did not survive but for 3 hours. This brought me tears and really made me realize how thankful I am-my daughter was born at a gestation that was BARELY viable. Despite the trials I have had the past 6 years,
At the same time I am so blessed to have what I have, even the trials. They have taught me much about life, and I truly have so much to be thankful for. These things have become so much a part of who I am today.

I do believe that there is a reason for everything. Stars align a certain way...fate...the powers that be...

I lost my only daughter shortly after she was born. That was 20(!!!) years ago. I wish more than anything that I could wrap my arms around her and touch the soft tufts of her hair or smell her baby smell. But that was not to be. There were other plans for her.

You have been blessed with this fabulous girl. Hold her tight and thank the powers above for gracing her into your life. She has a terrific mom!!!
