The Tsunamis

I haven't posted about the earthquake or resulting tsunamis, but it hasn't left my mind since hearing about it. I just heard about a mother who while being swept away by the water, holding onto her two little boys (ages 4 and 2) had to make a horrible desicion no mother should have to make. There was no way she could stay afloat and hold both her boys, and knew she had to make a choice. She decided she had better keep ahold of the younger one, and let her older son go. Thankfully that boy was found 2 hours later floating on a door, and the entire family was reunited.

I cried at hearing this story, because I could place myself in that situation and imagine how horrible it must have been for her to let her grip go on her first-born.

Luckily, their story has a happy ending, while so many others' do not. Please pray for these people.....

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
