I believe people are in your life for a reason

 I'm finding it very hard to think about anything else other than the tragic loss of Jennie from Edspire's baby girl Matilda Mae.  I am sure I am not the only one.
  I keep thinking how can life be so cruel? I am heartbroken for Jennie so I cannot comprehend how she is feeling.  It is just awful.  Like everyone I want to turn back the time and stop Jennie and her husband from the heartache.  Nobody should have to go through that pain.
  Thank you Jennie for sharing your tragic story I have now taken the blankets from baby Joseph and bought a baby sleeping bag.  It is going to take time for him to get used to it as he loved the blankets by his cheek but Jennie's story has made me not want to risk it.
  I have given my children more time.  I am very thankful I was able to watch Joseph fall asleep in my arms earlier.  As he fell asleep he had a huge smile on his face.  He was happy and knew  he could feel the love I was sending through to him.  I could feel the love back.
  I have to admit like every parent I need some peace and time to myself and children do not understand that.  They do not need that time I guess.  If I start to get annoyed something clicks inside me and I think how lucky I am to have Annabelle and Callum who love me dearly.  I love them so much.
  I believe this world is about growing and learning.  You learn from everyone around you and in this day and age with the power of social media we can learn and grow from people all around the world.  We then become better people.  Stronger people. I also believe that when I am low I can turn to people that have passed.  My Nana is the person I think of most when I feel low.  I ask her to help me.   I feel the help.  We all need some guidance and if you ask for it, it is there.
  I think you meet people for a reason.  People are in your life for a reason.

   I have certainly become a better person thanks to Jennie's Story.


  1. I too have been struggling with Jennies story, as my own babies are only 12 days younger than Matilda Mae. I cuddle the twins that little bit longer every night before I put them to bed and I fall asleep listening to the ticking of their motion sensors and it is the first thing I listen for when I wake up. They don't have blankets, although I believe cellular blankets are safe if you want to continue using blankets? I have removed the bumpers from their cots out of fear though.

    It is a cruel unfair world but the only thing we can do, is treasure every second we have with not just our children, but everyone who is important to us in our lives.

    1. It is and its made me believe this! Thank you for your comment x
