There is a story I have been following for a while now - that of Baby Declan (www.all-hands-on-dec.co.za)
Baby Declan is flying with the angels now - and it truly is a heart wrenching story.
I have been under a lot of pressure lately - both at home and at work. I am ashamed to admit I have been taking it out on my children.
Lol I haven't been beating them or anything like that, but I have been extremely irritable and short tempered and every day have been living for that moment when they are both in bed so I don't have to hear their constant demands.
After hearing about the passing of Baby Declan I realise how lucky I am.
I am lucky to not have to sit in hospital next to my baby's bed side every day.
I am lucky to be able to kiss my babies good night every night.
I am lucky to be greeted with smiles and sloppy kisses every morning.
I am lucky to be able to hold them and cuddle them straight out a bath.
I am lucky to hear Saige's cries or Lem's moaning because it means they CAN talk.
I am lucky to have my girls argue with me because it means they CAN hear.
I am lucky Lem asks me to walk her into school everyday – because it means she CAN walk
I feel very lucky and blessed today.
