It’s interesting how life has a way of coming around full circle in the way of miracles. A year ago in December, an acquaintance lost her child in a tragic accident. She was devastated and shared her and her family’s journey through the year. The blogs reminded me how blessed I am and that I should not take anyone or anything for granted. This was my lesson through her journey.
So the other day I got an email alert for a new post on her blog. I read it several times and didn’t pick up on the obvious until a colleague asked…then it made sense. The family is expecting a baby in May! She is being blessed with another blessing. I am not sure how I would take that if I were in her place…What feelings, emotions, or mixed ideas would be running through my head? But then this depends a fair bit on whether it was a planned or an unexpected pregnancy…both would have a different grasp on my emotions. If it was unexpected then how would I see this child, especially if it was another girl? Would I be able to love another child?? These are my thoughts if I was living this double-edged life. God only gives you what you can handle and when you are ready. I only pray this baby brings them only joy and happiness as they continue through their journey of loss.
