Need a good cry?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th6Njr-qkq0

I sat down to watch Oprah today not knowing how it would make me feel. She had kids on there who had overcome trials. She even had the conjoined twins from Utah. I sat there watching it holding Max and feeling so overly grateful for my happy, healthy children. I don't know if I could ever handle a trial like some of these. Then she showed a video and I cried my eyes out. I found it on you tube and had to share it. Some days I think my life is so hard and impossible. Boy, am I wrong. It doesn't take long to look around and see how lucky I really am! I hope this little video will help us all remember how lucky we are, how short life is, and to live for today!

Oh my heck, I've seen that before and I BALLED! It is heart breaking...it seems like just when I think life is hard I can look all around me and there's so many people who have it harder. It makes me grateful for what I have. Thanks for the thought. Oh, and such a CUTE picture of Max...I can't believe he's already 3 months! It goes by so fast it's hard to believe. He sure is a cutie!

So you have to go to my cousins website. Actually it is my cousins son. Anyway, if you want to check it out it is on my blog. Wink from Heaven. It hits really close to home. His mom April (my cousins wife) has such a great attitude about it! I will never again complain about my wild and sometimes frustrating children!

Holy cow...do I need a good cry? How about a good sob? I honestly do not know how people make it through losing a child. Really puts things into perspective. I think to myself at least once a day how lucky I am, especially when there are so many people that I actually know having so many hard trials. Thanks for the reminder, I'm going to go cry some more!

Wow...thanks a lot for the bawl! I can't believe I can't imagine having that happen (reminds me of Mindy's little boy)so awful. I guess I'll enjoy my naughty kids a little bit more :)

They are so precious. I can't imagine losing a child. That's the age Max and Aaron are. I can't even bring myself to think about it. Some people have such good attitudes and outlook on life. I need to be more positive like them. Life really is good!

Thanks for sharing that Darla, even though I'm balling my eyes out! How cute are those parents? When the Dad said his shift started at 11:00 and went til 4:00a.m. and that was the best part of his day. It's all how you look at things. I need to do better!
