A Life Cut Short...

~ Posted on Monday, April 2, 2012 at 7:38 AM ~

Last week, my cousin's daughter passed away. She was their first child and was just 3 months old.

I didn't know the exact details of the cause of death, I was told by another cousin that the baby was found not breathing by her nanny on Monday morning and her parents rushed over to pick her up from the nanny's place and then rushed to the hospital. The doctors managed to resuscitate her but she's practically brain dead even though the heart beat was there. She passed away 2 days later.

Just like that, a life cut short...

You know, sometimes when you feel frustrated with your kids:

- think about the parents who lost their child like this

- think about the parents who suffered miscarriages or had stillborn and never get to see their or touch their baby at all

- think about the couples who cannot even get pregnant and never get to experience being pregnant and feel the growing belly bump and being kicked by their baby

Think about that and start appreciating your children...

So sorry for your cousin's loss!

Great post. I am not a parent, but I understand the need to appreciate all the little ones in my life (and all the big ones, too), even when they may tire me out.

Hey Nicole,

Yes, we should be thankful right? Have to keep reminding ourselves even though sometimes the tantrums can get a little too much. ;)
