A Must Read

I read an email from a friend this morning and in it was a link to a blog about a pregnant woman who is carrying her 4th daughter with severe birth defects that are incompatible with life. It is imperative to read the blog from the beginning post to get the full story in order.

It brings me back to my pregnancy with Ryland. I was just mentioning to Chris yesterday how it was the darkest time of my life. For those of you that do not know, I had a disease called Hyperemesis Gravidarum...basically the worst morning sickness you can have. I lost 30 lbs and was in the hospital every other day to get an IV. I wanted nothing more than to leave this world and all the pain I was going through.

Anyhow, the reason I mentioned this is because this woman in the blog is going through horrific things, not with her own body but with the life inside her. She is an inspiration to anyone that has/had dark days. Her relationship with the Lord is one of the strongest I've seen and it is a blessing to see Him shine through her.

If you would like to blessed by reading her blog, here is the link:

NOTE: I wanted to say more but the morning has started...little ones are up and the loudness has begun. Normally the sounds of arguing grates my nerves but upon reading this blog I am thankful for their little mouths and the breath in their lungs.
