A friend of mine told me a very sad story this week. Her best friend lost their two year old son very unexpectedly. No apparent reason. Just didn’t wake up. In an instant, gone. This isn’t suppose to happen at two years old. Children this age are suppose to be happy and healthy, getting under your feet and driving us crazy.

My heart aches for the poor family and has made me love Emma even more. I didn’t know it was possible. For all the times I want to pull my hair out or think the day will never end, I am grateful for the amazing child we have. I’ve held onto her desperately this week, never wanting to let go. I just can’t imagine life without her.

She must sense something is up. She’s really taken advantage of the ice cream this week, that my friends will probably come to an end very soon!
