Maybe it was during pregnancy. Maybe it was at the birth of your child. Or maybe it was something that blindsided you two years (or more) later.
But when something doesn't go just right with your child, it's heart-wrenching.
When embarking on the journey called parenthood, we have a vision in our mind of what it will look like and feel like. The picture is very rosy.
But sometimes, too often, things happen. Illnesses happen. Accidents happen. Bad things happen. When things happen to you, you can be strong and determined. But when it's your child, it brings you to your knees.
It doesn't matter your situation or your circumstances, but if you've been through anything mentioned, you know. And you begin to look at each day and each milestone differently.
Just a reminder to not take a single day for granted.
