I'm a Lucky Mommy

Last night I came across this blog: In This Wonderful Life

Can I just tell you after I read "Cohen's Story" I had tears running all down my face!  I could never imagine having to go through what this mother and father had to go through. I don't think I could have the strength to pull through it.

As I was going through this little bit of sickness with Dylan last month, I cried and cried for hours. I just thought it was something viral, but doctor wanted to continue with all of this testing; blood work, x-rays, CT scans. Turns out--everything is okay and he is still okay to this day. I have even stopped the medicine the doctor put him on.

During this time with Dylan I thought to myself, how do mother's stay so strong when their little ones are a lot more sick than Dylan was??!!! My mother told me, "you just have to do it." And she is right. That is what Cohen's Mommy did.

Before reading this story last night, Drew was off the walls crazy hyper! I was yelling at him telling him he needed to settle down and he was acting too crazy and wild right before bedtime. Then, I read this story and felt bad for getting mad at him.

I am so very lucky to have two healthy boys and I thank God every single day for that. I also pray every single night for all those children who unfortunately aren't as healthy. I immediately got over my madness. Instead, I should feel blessed that I have these wonderful children in my life, crazy or not!
