Holding him tighter

14 04 2009

I read about sweet Maddie Spohr today and was crushed. 

To have a child taken from you in death is a horrible experience that no parent should have to experience.  Please pray for Maddie and her family as they walk through this difficult time in their lives. 

Reading about Maddie’s beautiful life has helped remind me how truly blessed I am to have a healthy baby of my own.  Life can come to a crashing hault in a matter of moments.  We must cherish the ones we have, for there is only now and only today. 

Please also keep in your thoughts Angie and Todd Smith and their family as they celebrate what would have been Audrey Caroline’s first birthday. 

I will be holding my son a bit longer and much tighter today and counting my blessings.
