Hold Your Babies Tight


Or anyone--we are all someone's baby....

Please visit The Macs for a reminder to cherish each day.
Start at the beginning if you can--it's not that long.
Two and a half weeks can be a lifetime.

Me?  I'm going to wake my kids and hug them now.

I read the Mac's story. I have known so many young kids that have been taken by cancer. My grandson was DX at the age of two with Leukemia, and after almost four years of chemo and radiation he is a survivor. He will always have health issues due to the harsh treatments...but we praise God. I pray for the Mac's to have His comfort and love as they journey through life without their daughter.

I have been following this story for a while now and it brings me to my knees everytime, in so many ways...

My walk is closer with God because of this sweet, wonderful Angel.

Thanks you for sharing this.

Not what I expected to read so early in the morning. Using your link, I read the entire story of the Mac's and their beautiful angel Cora. Yes, I am very grateful for our grandchildren. I pray they will always be safe and happy. I am stopping by my daughter's house on the way home from work this evening...I need to hug my babies.

Always say I love you more than you feel you should because someday you may not have the chance!

Oh MP, I read through their entire story from Christmas on last week and was a mess! I was like you, waking the kids and then following them around all day to love on them. Thanks for the reminder.

Bless thier ♥'s! What a sweet little angel...thank you for sharing this with us...I continued to read on after watching the video...helped me to change my outlook on many things...

Not what I was expecting to read either. So sad to read but the parents have such peacefulness about them. Truly, God is guiding them through this horrible time.
I am grateful that I have healthy, children and grandson.

Such a very, very good reminder. Every day is a precious gift.

Big Hair Envy said...

A sad reminder that every day is a gift. I'll probably hug my daughter a little tighter tonight...

Oh, I can't read it. I don't need to read it to know. I'll be crying all day -- I'm close to that now, as it is, without clicking the link.

The photo is so very sweet.

ACK, now I'm sad.

Debbie said...

Oh my goodness. I just read all of it and my baby is too far away to hug! I'm speechless.

Thank you for sharing with us. We need to be reminded always, how precious life is.

This story has just ripped my heart out. I pray for this young couple to hold each other tight. That sweet little angel. My heart is broken for them.

That just about did me in. They are so brave - I can't imagine even being able to breathe after going through that. Oddly, I am grateful to them- thanks for posting about them MPM.
