How Dare I....

How dare I complain about crying and tiredness when this family is suffering an unimaginable pain. I feel so sad for them and so sorry for my complaining. Sometimes I need a slap in the face to remember how grateful and lucky I am. Alexandra is wearing a bow for Maddie. We are sending love and prayers to the family.


  1. I have been so thankful this past week for every time my baby woke me up in the night. I thank God every time.

  2. I know I know.
    I feel the EXACT same way. What a sad, heartbreaking story.
    I feel bad, but I have to stop going to her blog...I turn into this huge sobbing MESS and I feel depressed and anxious for the rest of the day. But it does remind me how good I have it.....shit, even thinking about it now has me bawling again.

  3. That is one of the saddest things I have ever read :( I wish I had known before and I would have put a bow in my daughter's hair today.

  4. I have read to many posts like that one, by the mothers of angel babies who have passed away for no apparent reason. Sometimes the fear and sadness of it is overwhelming. I don't know what else to say except we have to be strong in the face of uncertainty and grateful, always grateful for what we have when we have it.

  5. It's just too much isn't it. It's absolutly heartbreaking.

  6. That is so incredibly sad, it brought me to tears reading it.

    When I had my daughter (now 3 1/2) I remember telling my husband I wanted another one soon. He could not understand why since we had just gotten home from the hospital. I remember feeling so much love for her that the thought of anything happening to her would have killed me. Literally, I felt like I needed to have two children so that I would have something to live for and I wouldn't kill myself.

    That probably sounds really weird. I'm actually a very happy person. And usually can make it through anything. But I don't think I could make it through death of a child.
