I am clinging to my son a little tighter today.  He has no idea, he is just glad to be held and snuggled. Overjoyed to have mommys face inches from his, to double over in laughter as his sides are tickled and belly blown on. He does not feel the weight of yesterday morning.

But I do.

While at a friends house for a playdate, a call came in. I could tell by the look on her face it was serious.
Tears came to her eyes as I was told of another friend, another family from my church,  another sister in Christ who had delivered her 20 week old triplet boys early that morning. All three saw Jesus' face before I awoke that morning.

What do you say? What do you do?

I walked to the edge of the room and watched as my son laughed and giggled with his buddy. I wrapped my arms around myself as tears slid down my face. I prayed. For my friends, for their family, for my son...for myself.

I thanked God for His wisdom and Sovereignty, even though I do not understand. I thanked Him for allowing my son to be blissfully unaware of heartache and pain... for now.

As I watched Rigg smile and try to eat a book, the weight of the knowledge hit me.

The knowledge that there are now 3 more babies I know in Heaven.

Lord, come quickly!

Please pray for my friends, Connie and Jason, and their family.

I am and will continue to do so.
:-)I wonder how heavens playground looks with all of our sweet peas running around? Probably an unbiblical concept, but one that brings a smile to my face, as I wait to meet our sweet pea.

How sad! I had a friend who's granddaughter lost triplets in utero. It was such a tragedy, because her friend was carrying the babies for her. She had survived a malignant brain tumor at 13. Due to the anti-seizure meds she was on, the doctors advised her not to get pregnant. Her best friend offered to carry a baby for her. After losing the triplets, her friend tried again successfully carrying a baby girl to term. During the pregnancy, the mother got pregnant accidentally and then delivered prematurely. Full-blooded sister and brother are about 5 months apart. Talk about a happy ending! I hope one for your friend, too.
