I made it through the day.

I made it through my first day back at work after several days off and not feeling so great. It was rough going the first half of the day but Dayquil and Tylenol were my friends. Glad to be home drinking my hot tea and listening to the rain outside my window. What is it about the sound of rain? I find it so soothing. Nothing better than a rainy day and nothing to do but read and snuggle with my cat, dog or husband. Sometimes with all 3 at the same time. :)

Really sad day at the NICU. We lost a baby girl that although expected, still heartbreaking for all of us. Nothing can prepare you as you watch a life being brought into the world and very quickly brought back out. Doesn't make sense to my mortal mind. Somehow there is sense to it but we just don't know it now. Someday when those parents are brought face to face with their perfect baby girl it will all come together. For now we are left just shaking our head and wondering why God does what he does.

On that note let me share my "Thank-You God" for my life and moments to be grateful for.

  1. Blessing me as I witness Life and Death and the frailty of it all.
  2. Friendships that go beyond having to speak.
  3. Maltballs!!
  4. Rain on my window
  5. Happy Dogs to greet me after a very long day.
