I watched a baby die this morning. We tried to save her but I think she was gone before she even got to us. When her mom entered the room I witnessed a grief reaction so intense and unlike anything I've ever seen in my 6 years in health care. My heart ached for them and I couldn't help but say a little prayer as I stood helplessly unable to give them comfort. These are challenging cases but I'm so grateful for my knowledge of the gospel and eternal families. Even with that knowledge I hope I never have to face that kind of sorrow in my lifetime.
Needless to say I needed some cheering up when I got home. I found just that while admiring my little attempt at a flower garden. We absolutely love our house and feel blessed to live here and I had a great time beautifying it last Saturday. I sure did have a "miss my mommy moment" though when I was picking out flowers alone. Enjoy the pictures and do me a favor and hug your babies/husbands a little tighter today!
