Thankful Friday..

Nope, it doesn't ryhme, but i could care less. Today i'm thankful..thankful for my beautiful healthy girls and my wonderful husband. Today i'm praying for Tuesday and her family too. Althought i have never met her or her family before and only know of her through blogging..i've read her blog since her mommy started it and we both have twin girls that are only months apart(this blogging thing turns into circles of friends..and someone i was lead to her blog). It's always fun to read blogs of other mommies with twins..girls, boys, identical, fraternal..we all have that bond. A bond that is like a sorrority of mommies that know all about what YOU are going through. Anyway, last night i read her blog and poor baby Tuesday is really sick(she has been sick and fighting cancer, tumors and just things that a poor little two year old should never have to fight). I couldn't sleep all night thinking about her and her family...i can't imgaine what they are going through. Why do things like this happen? Why can't all young babies, just be healthy. I just don't understand. I was so upset..this morning i just broke down crying because it's just too sad. I just couldn't imgaine one of my twins getting really sick and her sister(who looks exactly like her) watching her change..and not look like her anymore. How do you explain that to a two year old? Anyway, please please keep Praying for Tuesday...pray for her, for her family to be able to emotionally deal with this...and the rest of her family to be right there with her through this time.

On that note, i'm thankful for my family..for my beautiful healthy girls..for my wonderful hubby and for all our health. Sometimes we all get so caught up in LIFE, we really forget how extremly lucky we are to have healthy children..and a healthy family. Today, i'm going to remind myself not to take that all for granted. Money comes and goes..but your family is so much more important. I'm still hoping for a miracle and that Tuesday will just wake up healthy and happy tomorrow..but we just never know what God will bring to each of us. We never know when it could be US? So, hold your kidos and hubbies tightly tonight..and always tell them you love them. That is one thing i have learned through life..i tell my girls i love them ALL the time. My parents weren't the kind to tell their children how much they loved them..until there was some sort of family drama..DON"T wait for that. Even if they are bad and got in trouble at school..even if they received a bad grade(or a X at church-LOL) tell them you LOVE THEM! All children need to hear that.

Sometimes i wonder if i should have ever gotten soo hooked on blogging. I see so much..before blogging i was sheltered. Never heard much about sick kids..heard much about premature babies..but now i KNOW. Life isn't always pretty..but you take what is dealt to you and make the most of it.

Anyway, PLEASE PLEASE..if you pray..pray for Tuesday and her family. What a precious little gift..and it just really breaks my heart b/c she's been through SOO much in her short little life time. My heart is just breaking for her family..i just want to hug them all and hope that little Tuesday will get better. :)

Is a sad story, but we need faith and everything will be fine. God is good, and he have plans for us.

I like your post and I will pray for Tuesday and her family.

Have a nice weekend.

they are in my thoughts constantly. Every time I think about them and then look at my own kids, I tear up...

I couldn't agree more with blogging opening up so many things I'd been sheltered from in the past. But wihtout it I would be without this wonderful circle of twin mommy friends who understand what life is like, and those same twin mommy friends who hurt together because we all know the bond that twins have and we know what that poor family will be missing. My heart just breaks for them. . .
