This week has been hard. Like Really hard! We unfortunately had a tragic accident happen to our baby cousin and instead of getting to celebrate his first birthday yesterday, his parents had to hold his funeral instead.(Little Chad's obituary: here) I feel so much anguish for his parents. My heart aches for them. I can't seem to keep the tears at bay. I have had so many nightmares and so much anxiety over my own children- realizing how fast something like this can happen. Lives forever changed. With something like this, however, I am reminded of how grateful I am for my blessings: my own family. I love these people so much and feel we were perfectly matched to teach and love each other for this life and forever. I do KNOW that we can be eternal families and that our Heavenly Father has a plan for us. I know He wants us to be happy. I am so thankful for my Savior and His gospel. I guess I feel the need to acknowledge my blessings, express my love for my children, and show gratitude that we are all together today. I hope that I will take the time to cherish every little moment.
