This morning Rory woke up especially early, so after realizing he was not going to go back to sleep we came downstairs and I made some coffee and the two us just hung out. Since he's pretty easy to please I had him on my lap and looked at a few blogs while everyone else was sleeping.
While browsing I came across one of the saddest stories I have ever read here in the blogging world. You can read it here. The story brought tears to my eyes and all day I've been thinking of this poor family and their loss. I can't even begin to imagine what they are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with them.
It got me to thinking that I am so lucky and grateful for all the wonderful things I do have and I really need to take the time to appreciate them more. Sometimes I spend too much time wishing we had a bigger house or I had more time or help so I could really get all the things done that I want to. I've been trying hard to be a more positive person, but I know sometimes I fail. Sometimes it just seems that anything that can go wrong will, but I try to remember it is all just little stuff. Reading this family's story made me realize those things don't matter at all.
These are the only things that do
Even though there are times when they may drive me crazy I couldn't imagine my life without them and love them more than I ever thought was possible.
