we realize what we really have. Yesterday I was frustrated with my kids, my husband, my life. I was angry and overwhelmed. I woke up this morning to find out my friends 2 month old son died of SIDs at daycare yesterday. All my sorrow for myself went right out the window. We get so caught up in the little things in our lives, we forget to be thankful for what we have. My kids are health, my baby is alive. I will hold my kids tighter, tell them I love them a little more. My friends son was just 6 days younger than my son. We updated each other regularly through pregnancy and after the boys were born. I am at a complete loss of words and feel like a zombie today because I am so overwhelmed with sorrow for her and her family. It opened my eyes to realize that my house can be a mess, I'd rather pick up my kids toys and clean their plates than have to bury them in the ground. Not just on Thanksgiving, but every single day I will be thankful for what I have. There is so much tragedy in my group of friends right now, its unbelievable. I know a family who recently had a baby who has to have open heart surgery, a friend whose daughter is severely sick, a friend whose house just recently burned to the ground (luckily they all got out alive), and now this. I can't imagine any of this happening to my family. At all. Count your blessings people.
