Must have been my lucky bracelet

28 Apr

My baby girl is in surgery. I guess it’s a weird time to blog but I’m not sure what else to do. I feel like I’m covered on the G-D side of things. He knows what’s up down here. I feel truly confident that she’s going to be fine and even better than fine after this minor surgery. Her ear infections have been reoccurring and relentless, this will give her the relief the antibiotics haven’t.

I can’t help but think of the others. The other children, the other parents and siblings that go through major surgeries on a regular basis. Cancer. Birth Defects. Syndromes. All of it, unimaginable to have my child, my baby go through any of it. Maybe it was the lucky bracelet I wore while I was pregnant with her and her twin brother. Maybe it’s genes, karma, just the sheer grace of a higher power out there. I am chock full of sarcasm and humor pretty much 99% of the time. It’s tough being a stay at home Mom to three little kids, including twins. But today my job feels like a cake walk in comparison to the Mamas who have really sick babies.

I’m not going to lose my sense of humor about raising children, I’m also not going to lose my perspective.

I made a little donation to a charity that “gets it.” You can too: Ronald McDonald House Charities


Have you ever had one of these moments?
