The Funk

Without any intention or fault of her own, my friend Shannon passed "the funk" on to me. Hers is winter blues. Mine is the internet.

I have been reading on other sites about so many people in need....so many sick babies....Nie Nie recovering....my own niece suffering from seizures....varying degrees of difficulty for so many.

Recent finds include:

The McClenahans

Baby Tuesday

Harper

All of these people need our prayers. Spend some extra time today thinking about them and then, let's all count our blessings. Reading about such situations makes me completely vulnerable and at odds with why our lives play out as they do. I simply don't understand it all.

Instead of trying to find reason, I will pray and do what I can to help those in my reach. And, I will hug our 3 and call my siblings and thank God for those close to me. I am humbled and I am blessed.

I just read about baby Cora that they thought had an ear infection. Turned out to be stage 4 cancer. She isn't even 1 yet.

Another family in my prayers. I am sooo blessed. And we all need to lift these families up.

Just realized baby Cora is the Macs...

I also just read about baby Cora and I am just sobbing. I can't even begin to imagine what these parents are going through! Here, I was having my own pity party for having to spend my morning at the DMV with the children. I am now feeling thankful that I have not had to spend it at the hospital. I am praying for this family. . .thanks Casey for reminding us to count our blessings!!!!

Life is so precious, and I cannot even begin to imagine any of my children so sick or taken from me. There is absolutely no way I could handle it. I have been praying for that little baby Harper and thinking how minor my woes are compared to others.

Wow! I can't even imagine dealing with cancer or death with my girls! God Bless these children and their families and all the others out there dealing with sick kids. Prayers and Faith!

I'm sorry to pass on the funk. I think it kind of lifted from me at least for a bit. I'm so sorry to hear about Tuesday. :`(```

I know what you mean. It's so sad. I can't even imagine what these families are going through. We are all so blessed.
