Breathe, and thank God you got the chance

This morning I am just thankful that she woke up to live another day.

Would the world keep turning without its cutest baby?
Because my world certainly would not.

To all those mothers who aren't holding their babies this Christmas, you are in my prayers. I couldn't sleep last night because I kept putting myself in your shoes, and it seemed wrong to close my eyes and not grieve with you. At 2:30 a.m., I prayed, "God I am afraid, and so are they. Take our fear, Lord. Take our fear."

"...it seemed wrong to close my eyes and not grieve with you." Oh, Charissa, I felt the same way and was praying through the night. Thank you for putting my feelings into words. Barbara A.
