I've been following the tender story of the Pack family. They were involved in a tragic auto accident that snuffed out the life of their sweet 18-month-old little boy. Mom and Dad are still in the hospital, trying to grieve and recover from their own serious injuries. My heart breaks for them.
I wish I had a magic wand sometimes. I can't change what has happened - in my life or anyone else's. But tonight, I will give my babies an extra hug, or two, or three. I will sneak into their room when they are sleeping and stroke their still-fine baby hair heads. I will say an extra prayer over their crib, asking the Lord to please watch over them, and help me be the very bestest Mommy I possibly can for them. I am so thankful for my babies - and for each of my children. Thank you, God. I have been so richly blessed to have my quiver full.
