I Needed This Reminder. Do You?

Yesterday, I had a bad day.

Work felt overwhelming.

I haven't been losing weight.  I've been eating sugar again.  And drinking Coke Zeros like they're never gonna make them again.

I felt moody, sad and defeated. 

My house is messy.  The laundry is piling up.  The kitchen floor is disgusting.

During my lunch, I sat in my office alone and read blogs.

Becoming Sarah is on my blogroll.  Love her, love the way she and her husband are parenting, and their baby Charlotte is a precious chipmunk-cheeked child.

From Sarah's blog, I discovered Ewan's story.

And couldn't stop reading.  Please take a moment and read.

Cry with them.  Cry for them.  And remember how blessed you are. 

I know I will.

The messy kitchen floor can wait.

Wow! Thanks for putting things into perspective. I am a fortunate mother of two boys and plan on extra tight hugs tonight before bed. Sometimes we forget how insanely lucky we are!

Thank you, Sarah. I needed that, too. Friends of mine went through this about 6 months ago, but they never in-depth. I needed this story in more ways than one.

I am so sad for them. Thank you for the perspective. I had a hard time conceiving my son, and I cannot imagine the loss that they are feeling.

I just can't're all can wait.

well...crap. Now my heart aches and my eyes are all red and watery.

Ewan had more of an impact due to his strength and soul at a couple of weeks old than I or many people I know have had in their 30+ years.
