Uwrapping Normal

Today I read this
And I cried.

Then I read this
And I cried, again.

For Tuesdays Unwrapped I want you to read what I read.

Ashleigh @ Heart and Home helped me to remember just how much others are sacrificing so I can have all of the little things I frequently fail to appreciate. Also, suddenly the fact that Josh is going to be gone Monday and Wednesday nights for classes over the next two months doesn’t seem like such a big deal.

Arianne @ To Think is to Create reminded me that those baby kicks that wake me in the middle of the night are not annoying, but reassuring. There are those out there who would gladly endure the pains and discomforts that accompany pregnancy, all to once again have hope of  holding their child at the end.

I wasn’t going to post today, but after reading these women’s stories, I wanted to share them with you.

Let’s remember to keep them in our prayers as we go about our normal routine, because their normal has changed drastically.
