-children are a gift-
We are never guaranteed our children for a particular length of time. Some children are blessed to outlive their parents, some unfortunately do not. Though we are so blessed to still have Beckett to this day, we have certainly experienced dark moments of death knocking at the door of our son’s life. Life is fragile, thankfully we are learning this lesson at the beginning of our son’s life. Similar to how much more love I have ‘felt’ or experienced for my son through this journey, his life is all the more valued. Those of you with children (whether infant, teenager, adult, etc), their life and health is not guaranteed. Value and cherish one another, your family, your friends, and especially your children.
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
Beckett is doing well (I begin my Updates with those lines to help dilute anxiety). He was weighed again last night and is now 7lbs 3.5oz. This is great news! Though we cling to the ‘positive’, we were reminded from an experienced nurse that babies with Beckett’s condition need to be assessed one day at a time. Unfortunately ‘things’ can change quickly, but I guess we are no stranger to that. This reminder is what inspired the first half of this update. Beckett is our gift, we commit to enjoy, celebrating and appreciating each day we are blessed with him! I charge you to do the same.
Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.
