ups and DOWNS . . .
Has life ever thrown so much at you that you don't know how much more you can handle? There are all these little things and some are big things affecting my life right now. It's one of those times where it's hard to keep my head up, my spirits high, a smile on my face. And then I read blogs. Odd? Not to me. I started reading the NieNie dialogues when she was on Oprah or else KSL news, not sure which. But she was in a plane crash and has burns over 80% of her body. Yet she gets up every day, she is a mom everyday. She is still recoverying and has surgeries and treatments ahead of her and she still gets up. While reading that blog I have stumbled upon others. One is by a woman named Molly. Her 2 year old daughter died after choking on an apple, at church! She too gets up, she too is still a mother, she still chooses to live. So in my dark time, when my heart is hurting, when my burdens feel extra heavy, I too will get out of bed. I too will be a mother, I too will live each day.
