as i sat in my office reading this blog (http://www.laylagrace.org/) and crying, i realized i needed to talk to someone so i headed for the most private place.....the bathroom. i sat in the stall talking and praying to God for a long time about this little girl and her family (who i don't know). although one thing i do know is that this story hit very close to home for me because my little girl is the same age. it made me realize that everything can change in an instant and i have to savor every moment and last night was one of those nights that i will savor forever. i sat down on the couch next to atlee and asked her if she wanted to sit in my lap. she shook her head yes and jumped right in. we cuddled up with a blanket and she laid her head down on my chest....as she watched Dora and as i watched her. then, as she saw me looking at her she looked up at me and said, "mommy, i love you"....and kissed me. moments like these are what i live for now! and reading layla grace's blog put alot of things into perspective for me. even though her time here on earth may be short, she has made an impact in many people's lives. thank you Lord for blessing us!
