The Blessings I have seen and felt today

Today I watched a family draw close to each other

Today I saw the beautiful body of a newborn

Today I witnessed grief and pain but also more love and compassion from so many

Today I felt my Savior wrap his arms around us


My dear friend lost her baby today after an emergency c-section.  It was a very humbling experience as I helped their children thru the day and watch the compassion and love from so many friends today.


  1. I don't "know" you but I "see" you frequently on Amy's blog. Thank you for posting this.
    Beautifully written.

    Thank you.


  2. Dear Mandy,
    I am so sorry for your friends loss. She is lucky to have a loving circle of friends, like you, to help her.

    I will say a special prayer.
