I try and appreciate all the gifts and blessings in my life. Sometimes I don't, some I let pass by me. But today I am once again reminded of my blessings. It's been about a week ago since I blogged about it having been 2 years since we found out we were pregnant with twins. We didn't know it was going to be such a hard road. I never had any major pregnancy issues. Within a couple of weeks, we found out that one of the twins (Twin A) wasn't growing. Oh, it was hard. But I am so thankful that my husband right away stood up for his little life. With all the pressures and worrying about Twin B, I don't know what decision I would have made honestly. They told me it was risky because if Twin A died, and I went in to labor, I might loose them both. My husband was adamant that we were continuing on. Throughout the pregnancy I spent countless hours in and out of the hospital and doctors appointments. But the second thing I am greatful for is for the birth of my twins! What a miracle, what a gift. They have been a blessing to our family, they have brought us closer together. I think that my husband and I would be divorced right now if we hadn't come together for them. I have fallen in love all over again with my husband! He has fallen in love all over again with me. Our marriage has been better then it ever has been these last two years. He's a better dad then he's ever been, it's a miracle. God knows what he's doing, and though sometimes sickness tears people apart, it did the opposite for us. It brought us closer. What a blessing the gift of life is! And the picture above is of Baby A after he was about 3 and a half weeks old. We couldn't hold him for a couple of weeks, and this was the first time we could dress him and take him out of his incubator for a little while. One of the best days of my life. You don't know the agony and pain of standing next to your little babies, laying there in incubators, not being able to touch them because they were so sensative to touch and pain. I just cried. But finally, we got to touch them and kiss them and hold them!
