"Best tonight by a mile"
On a more serious note. I feel like my reality has been rocked once again. You know you start to feel safe and untouchable and lose touch of how lucky you are to be breathing that breath you are taking right now. Yes, that one. And that one. Allie always puts it into perspective. So do Nick, Daegen, Jacob, Wesley, Lacey, Haley, and Emerald. There are so many more. And many people that have touched my life personally as well. Tonight my heart breaks for someone I have never met who is in her 21st week of pregnancy. Today they learned terrible news about their unborn baby boy, that he has so many defects that he will either die shortly after birth or be severely mentally and physically disabled. We have been following her short journey since her first questionable ultrasound and nobody thought this would happen. My heart is broken for her. I AM SO THANKFUL for every ounce of good in my life. Every smile. Every tear. Every conversation. Every argument. Everything. I know they say everything happens for a reason, and in the end, I do believe that, but sometimes it just doesn't seem right. I just keep picturing her learning of her pregnancy and telling her son "guess what? Mommy's going to have a baby." And this is her fate. I can hardly stand the thought.
Please say a prayer for this mother, her husband and both of her boys.
