So as I am sitting here looking thru blogs trying to help de-stress myself from my so called stressful life I truly realize just how lucky I am in my life. I have recently come across different peoples story of losing there child way too early. Some of these people I have known personally in my life and others I have never met.
As you may or may not know at my 20 week ultrasound when I was pregnant with Austin we were told that they thought he had a hole in his tiny little heart. As Brad and I sat in the room waiting on the Dr. to come and explain everything to us all I could think about what the bad things that could happen. I had to have extra ultrasounds thru out the pregnancy to determine what the outcome would be. But they would not be certain until birth. Well Austin was born 100% healthy, no hole in his heart, and we are so thankful for that. He is truly my little blessing.
However, there are so many people that's story doesn't turn out with a happy ending.

I have been feeling stressed the last few days trying to balance everything in our life. Trying to keep up with Austin as he is trying to get into everything, trying to keep the house clean and make sure that Brad is taken care of and on top of all of this I work full time. Although I may have the luxury of working from home I do work. Austin is teething and also trying to get a little cold so he has been a little fussy the last few days. Its so easy to only see the bad or stressful in our life and not see everything we have to be so thankful for. I am so thankful to have an amazing son who is healthy and a wonderful loving husband and a nice house to raise my family in as well as a job to help support our family. So as I was sitting here my son started crying (he was already asleep for the night) normally I would be a little selfish and try to stress that he was not sleeping the way I wanted him to. Tonight I got up and help my son tighter than normal and rocked him and gave him a little extra TLC. Not that I wouldn't normally get him and rock him, but this time it just felt a little more special. I am going to work on not letting the small things stress me in life. As long as I have my family and our health that's all I can ask for. So for all of you that have a little one, go give them a big hug and be thankful that they are there to give you all the stress and blessing in your life.
