I usually post on Thursday nights because I leave for work so early in the morning. Since it's Thursday, it's still October 19. This date is a significant one for me. It represents the gift of life. My first son was a micro preemie and spent 15 weeks in NICU. He finally came home on Oct. 19, 1995. We celebrate every year. We are so blessed to have him in our lives. On Oct. 19, 2000, my second son, also a micro preemie, died during delivery. That magnifies the miracle my first son is. And I'm reminded every year on this date. I made my annual trip to the cemetery, today. On my way home I remembered that it was Thursday and I didn't have any idea what the challenge would be. So, I began to run through my day for anything that might spark an idea. And this is what I came up with. I hope you like it.
Life is a Gift:
