Be thankful everyday

So as most of you know I am a part of a baby board on Baby center, where we offer advice and can create great friendships... But as much happiness and joy that comes out of these boards there are always some sadness and sorrow. Just recently one of the ladies whose baby was born just 8 days before Lexie, was called up to God by SIDS. He was also taken on Lexie's 4 month birthday. This story brings tears to my eyes and makes me so sad and I just can't imagine what this family is going through! It makes me wanna just hold onto all 3 of the girls and kiss them all over until they are super sick of kisses! It also makes me thank God everyday for blessing me with these 3 beautiful girls and I thank him every day that he keeps them in our lives. It makes me realize just how much I take for granted through out the days. And I will from now on stop and talk to Elli no matter what, I will stop and watch Sammy throw her baseball across the backyard, and I will now stop and just listen to Lexie babble on and on in happiness! You just don't know which day will be your last. Everyday is a gift and I will no longer take any of them for granted. I pray that I will get to watch all 3 of the girls grow up happy, healthy, get married, have babies of their own, and even watch them become grandparents! That is my biggest wish and prayer... So don't take any day for granted! I surely won't be!!
