New Addition

Quote of the day:

It's never too late to be who you might have been -
George Eliot




Some random thoughts...
sort of weaving a web through my mind right now..

Today,
A new baby niece...
got news on that earlier on..
can't think of anything more beautiful in the world...

On Monday,
My friend Jay had some heartbreaking news...
Her 3 yr old niece had -due to an illness fell into a coma...
she fought back though-came out of it...and was able to go home to her family.

She passed on...over the weekend.

Reminded me of the tragic end of Mike Tyson's 4 yr old daughter...
'Exodus' was her name...ironic.
Every parent's worst fear is to lose a child. Everyday...Sadness that can kill...slowly.

Does anyone think they deserve to be alive?
breathing...
eating..sleeping?

I'm reminded of...
The song 'tears in heaven' by Eric Clapton...
The day i found out that he sang the ballad following the painful death of his four-year-old son...
It just made sense completely.

Does anyone think they deserve to be alive?




Current Listen: Eric Clapton -Tears in Heaven

  2. Congrats on the new addition...babies are a true marvel. On another note, your friend's loss is really painful, God give them strength during this difficult time. Losing a child is every parent's nightmare and I pray none of us will experience that. A lot of things have happened this past week that make you realize that life is a gift...let's take care of it well. I'm grateful to God for life.

  5. By his grace oh!
    His undeserving grace!

    It's soo sad to see little children pass on! they are soo full of life and a joy to be with. you just have to wonder WHY?
    God knoweth, He giveth and He taketh. we cannot question his ways coz they are light years away from ours.
    In Him alone we trust!

    Congrats oh!
    My little cousin was born on the 29th of May. A bundle of joy!

  10. waow- that really is sad. Only God knows why these things happen. He too lost a child so definitely understands what these parents are going thru.

    It is no one's right to be alive. We are alive becos of the grace of God.

  11. @Tigeress,i feel you on that...

  12. Does one deserve life...humm.. Not sure but I do know We should all be grateful to the Lord above for each night we lay our heads to sleep and wake up in the morning. This was an ironic post, on one side two people are enjoying and celebrating the life of a new child. while on the other hand a family is mourning the loss of a child. In short no one ever knows what cards life will deal them, thus we must cherish each breathe, tear, smile, and day that we are on this earth. because we never know when it will be our last!
