I woke up way to early this morning and missed my husband but then became VERY thankful that he is coming home in just a few days! I got 2 very different phone calls today, one was to tell me that one of our friends had triplets! 2 boys and 1 girl and although they were a little early, Mom and babies are doing very well and should be able to go home in a few weeks. They had been trying for years to have a baby and were going to adopt but WHAM, she got pregnant so congrats to you guys!
The next call knocked me off my feet. . . Another couple that we know (we worked with him on base but he just retired about a year ago) lost their triplets. They were almost full term but something went terribly wrong and they were all still born. I didn't even know what to say, you can't tell them that everything is going to be ok because right now, it's not. All I could say is that I will be keeping them in my prayers and that if they needed anything then just give me a call. HOW? WHY? I was raised to NEVER question God's decisions in life because he has a purpose for everything but when something like this happens, I am struggling deep inside. So now . . . I pray!
