these are the 3…

1044

I seem to pick up little things that seem to be appropriate to my life here and there.  today as I was talking with a friend who has also lost a baby, who knows the despair of walking out the hospital trying to hold  yourself together instead of holding  that new beautiful baby boy, she said something that I may start to say myself.

as you know, one of the harder things to deal with is the question, ‘how many kids do you have?’.  her answer, when it fits, is … ‘these are the 2 that we have here.’

yes.  that is a good way to say it.  these are the 3 I have here.  the other 1 is in heaven all ready.  I can’t wait to see him.  I will go to him.

this of course opens the door to speak about the other HIM in my life.  the other HIM that I wait to see.  oh how I love HIM.  I wouldn’t have made it this far without HIM.  I thank God for giving up His Son … … give me the grace and the strength and the courage to be able to speak up and say as much when the opportunity is presented.
