...and even though you sigh a huge sigh and feel
Our honored teammate, Alex, was diagnosed at age 3 with lymphoma. He took his last dose of chemo in November of 2010 and recently celebrated being cancer free. In fact, last week on April 26th, his mom, Sara, posted on her blog that it felt like it had all been a dream. She spoke of how normal life had become and about what Alex has been up to. Then three days later, on April 29th, Alex found out he now has leukemia and this 6 year old little boy is again fighting for his life.
I know sometimes we doubt ourselves as parents and sometimes we even wonder what in the heck made us decide to take on this most very hard career, but today I know that I am thankful for my healthy babies and even if I might screech at them a little too often, they get even more hugs and love than screeches and I'm so very thankful they are under my feet and picking their butts and telling inappropriate jokes and that they ARE. RIGHT. HERE. WITH. ME!
Hug your babies today...big and small. Remember how blessed we are.
