I've yet to find the time to sit down and upload vacation pictures or pictures from Ava's birthday party.  They will be forthcoming, but today I am really pondering the blessing it is to have healthy children.

A former coworker of Marc's has a little four 1/2 year old girl who is undergoing cancer treatment.  His coworker has a way with words and reading their day to day existence on Caring Bridge is heart wrenching.  They aren't writing for pity, they are simply writing the fact, the struggles their little girls is having,  how they are working with the school to communicate with her preschool class, etc.  It is overwhelming to read and I often wonder if I'd be handling it with the grace they seem to be.

Today, if you aren't explaining to a 4 1/2 year old who loves her hair that she's still beautiful without it,  If you aren't giving your child "magic mouthwash" to numb their mouth and throat full of soars so they can somehow get down food and drink,   If you aren't watching your little one get poked and prodded over and over....say a prayer of thanks.  Our kids health is a gift, a miraculous gift that I take for granted far too often.
