I wanted to quickly share a little something with all of you. A sweet blog reader of mine named Cathy (who has become a good friend!) has a close friend going through a very difficult time right now. She is pregnant and is carrying her precious baby to term despite the fact that he has anencephaly (the formation of the brain is limited or does not occur). This couple is raising money to cover the cost of a memorial bench to have made in their baby’s honor. I am sharing this with you today for two reasons. Reason one is because Cathy has become a dear friend of mine so when she asked me to share this with my readers I didn’t hesitate. If it is important to her it is important to me. Reason two is because I have been blessed to be pregnant four times in my life. My first pregnancy was a miscarriage and it was incredibly difficult even though I lost the baby early on. I can’t imagine carrying a baby full term knowing that your time on earth with your sweet angel will be so short. My heart aches for what this couple will go through. My friend Cathy blogged about their story here and you can see the family’s facebook page here if you would like to learn more or consider donating. Thank you!
This has been a slow blogging week for me! Kenny and I are very much still in recovery mode. Moms don’t get sick days. I almost laughed when the doctor told me to “get lots of rest.” I wanted to say “have you met my two year old!?” :) Hopefully things will turn around and we will start to feel better this weekend. My girls are feeling better and have been doing their best to help entertain Kole.
Of course we all know what that means.
Poor kid doesn’t stand a chance.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
