Jumpstart Week Day 2

This week I'm going to be blogging along with the SITS gals.





They posted a neat idea last Friday, and you can read about it here.  They are also going to be giving someone a really rad washer/dryer combo thingy, so maybe you want to blog along too.  (just read all the rules)

Anyhow, so here is today's bloggy idea:   

Tuesday, September 14
Re-upload a post you wish more people had read 
and explain why it was important to you.

So, here is a post from the waaaay back that I read everytime I start feeling self pitying.  It brings me back to reality quickly, and reminds me who I am and where I am going.  Of course, I believe myself to be a COMPLETELY different person than the girl who wrote this post nearly 2 years ago. 
 
"They gave so much to be so little, but Angels always do..." 


Of course, I'd really like everyone to read about my sweet babies and the life they have given us.  To read about Rowan or Levi just click their names.  These sweet boys taught me more about life, death, love, motherhood and EVERYTHING in their small time with us...than I could have learned in my lifetime.


I know the prompt was for one post, but there are so many I'd like to share.  This one features a video made as a tribute for my boys by my new online friend Lynda.  Please take a look if you haven't already seen it, and take another look if you have!!  I watch this video everyday because I cannot look at my children enough.

"We have suffered, but we have survived;
We are hurting, but we are enduring.”
