Humbled...

1.29.2010

I just got really REALLY humbled today and thought I might share...

As I was blog stalking this morning, I happened upon the cutest, most sincere and down to earth blog I have ever read. And I bawled my eyes out and realized how ungrateful I am and how caught up in the little insignificant things I am all.the.time. This mother lost her little newborn baby, recently. As in this last month. I can remember the things I was doing on the days that her family was struggling so much. And although you can tell she is hurting, I have never heard such amazing, real faith in my life. As far as I can tell, "God is good" is her motto. What a strong woman. Her blog made me realize that it is important to love every second of your life, cherish every moment you have with your babies and your families. Mostly, I realize how real God's love for us is, if we would only realize how much he does love us and that he is there for us and KNOWS what we're going through. He knows what is best, and I'm sure it kills Him to do things like this and watch a family suffer. But I know He knows. And I'm so grateful for the knowledge that we will all live with him again. This blog is such an uplifting, personal, heart WRENCHING blog. Be prepared to bawl. My shirt is soaking. And I know I'm totally copying her blog, here is a little piece from Dr. Seuess. Visit her blog here. Enjoy.

I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true
that Bang-ups and Hang-ups can happen to you.

You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on. You’ll be left in a Lurch.

You’ll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are, then, that you’ll be in a Slump.

And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.

You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose?
How much can you win?

And if you go in, should you turn left or right…
or right-and-three-quarters?
Or, maybe, not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find,
for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.

. . . .

On you will go though the weather be foul.
On you will go though your enemies prowl.
On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak.
On and on you will hike.
And I know you’ll hike far and face up to your problems whatever they are.
. . . .


And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)
