The post no one should have to write

Last night I stumbled on the blog post of a woman whose 21 month old son died in a sudden and tragic accident

Reading her story and watching the above video tribute broke my heart. It also made me aware of how wasteful my time is and of how much I take for granted.

I am blessed with a beautiful, energetic, healthy, 8-month old son. And if, God forbid, I were to lose him, I would regret not getting down on the floor and playinog with with, not reading to him more, and simply taking the time to cuddle.
I read a lot of different blogs with focuses on everything from crafts to daily living to leading a healthy lifestyle. But for all of my readings nothing, really, has helped me to live a more purposeful life.
And so, that is what I pray I will begin to do. I don't want to look back one day and wonder where the time went and why I took what I had for granted.

I want to live a purposeful life and I want to be proud of all I do.

  1. Thanks for the good reminder to live life with purpose. So easy to forget that especially with everything gets so busy. Nothing is more important than our children and families.
