I also subscribe to that blog....I wish she posted more but often her posts are sad. Is that why you love and hate it?
I know. But consider..."It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something."
at least you didn't put a big flowery headband on my daughter's head like they did to Julia! :-)
Sorry, it's the medical side in me - TMI
I started reading this a few months ago. I love her stories and her way to really get you to that moment with a crazy family. I love the one where a family cale to the ER and shared with them that there daughter had not had a BM is som many days...she finally had one but they wanted to come into the ER b/c that thought that someone should know that she had not had a BM is a few days!
