Thankful Thoughts #3

I cannot even explain to you how Thankful, Grateful, Blessed, and extremely Lucky I feel! Just yesterday my Aunt got news that one of her cousin's, who was pregnant, and was about a week over due had not felt her baby move for a while so went to the emergency room to where they got the devastating news that she had lost her baby! She then had to labor and deliver her child that she would then have to plan a funeral for. I cannot even imagine the agony and pain that she and her husband are going through. A good friend of mine, about a year ago went through the same thing and it was just devastating for her. I think that a lot of us, I know I do, take for granted the wonderful blessing it is to have a healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery, and child!!! I am soooo THANKFUL for the health of my child and my family in general! I hope that we all can remember how fragile, and what a miracle life is! Live each day to the fullest and treat your loved ones like it is the last day you will have with them, you won't regret it, because you never know what life can and will bring! I send my deepest sympathies to the families that have to go through this life changing trial, it makes me ever so grateful for the knowledge of the Gospel and Eternal Families! We will see all of our loved ones again if we are Sealed for Time and All Eternity! Let us all thank our Heavenly Father every minute for our families and our health!

isn't that so true!! I am SO thankful for my son and that he is healthy. I just pray the rest of my pregnancies and babies are the same. Thanks for that thought!
