gratitude



Today while I went about my daily meandering online I went to one of my favorite blogs The Coterie. I learned that her nephew is in critical condition due to an unusual combination of RSV and Purtussis. Coincidentally my son will be vaccinated for both of these terrible diseases tomorrow. I feel such an overwhelming sense of gratitude for a healthy child and at the same time an incredible amount of empathy for someone I don't know.

I also feel very hopeful for her, we live in such a time where medicine is advanced and there are so many more options for treatment. I feel hopefull for her because she is clearly such a strong and faithful woman.  Please go have a look at Natalie Nortons blog and keep her son and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the heads-up. I will be praying for baby Gavin and also saying prayers of gratitude for our healthy babies.
