oh goodness….

I’m a blubbering loon!  Did you guys watch Oprah today?  Goodness…what an awesome show!  Wonderful kids, amazing miracles and so much inspiration!  But one story made me a complete mess….Eliot.  I’m going to warn you guys…hormonal or not, you are going to cry.  The story is sad but there is something else we can take away from it that is positive.  I LOVE what his Mom said to Oprah….she said that knowing he would not live, she could cry later and that she was going to take advantage of everyday of his life…..



So make sure you give your kids extra kisses and hugs tonight and tell them how much they mean to you!

  • Did you not get off the couch and go kiss your babies after seeing that? I did…It just lays everything on the line..and THANK GOD-everyday for healthy babies. I am not sure I could find that strength as Eliots family did. God Bless the children!
