Given the loss that our friends experienced, there has been a lot of talk of babies around here. My sweet Nutball has an interesting idea about acquiring a baby. She says all our friend has to do is "take a deep breath" to get a new baby in her tummy. I don't know where she got that idea from, but I find it quite amusing. Of course, Princess thinks all I need to do to get her a baby sister is go to the hospital and get one. Not that surprising, since to her 5 year old mind that is all I did to get Monster. She conveniently forgets that he grew in my stomach for 9 months. Funny how that works.
I am reminded often in these last few, sometimes difficult days what a blessing our children are and young kids in general. They are so resilient and so trusting in how things work. They are so aware of our feelings and wanting us to feel better. They are such gifts.
Keep praying; this is something that will stay with us.
