It is so heartbreaking when your baby is sick. To see my normally very active and fun-loving toddler so uncomfortable is very sad. He sounds like Darth Vader when he breathes and a barking seal when he coughs. He was coughing all night long, poor guy. I wish I could take the pain away from him. Motrin seems to help and I did get a few smiles out of him yesterday. At least he is cuddly again - I guess that's a good thing, right? I hope this passes very soon and that his brother doesn't get sick. The doctor says it should progressively get better. I sure hope so!

And I had to leave him to go to work. At least grandma will give him a lot of TLC. Although, this afternoon they are with a new sitter (Yikes!)

Do you believe in miracles? That was the e-mail I sent to my friend when I found out I was pregnant for the first time. We had given up hope and then it happened!

Have you ever experienced a miracle? Most people, when experiencing a bad situation, say "why me?" and "what have I done to deserve this?" I too have asked these questions many, many times.

Recently I have asked these questions in a positive way. My life has taken a turn for the better.

There have been several instances wherein the outcome could have been different (worse). All of these instances, I believe, were God's helping hand.

This past weekend there was a terrible accident. I keep replaying it over and over in my mind and it brings tears to my eyes every time. The outcome could have been MUCH different. I truly believe I experienced another miracle and feel extremely grateful and blessed!

Thank you AGAIN lord!
