Please hug your children now...

If this doesn't make you want to go and hug and kiss your little ones...nothing will. I stumbled across this blog somehow, but it has literally rocked my world. Trivial things in this world DO.NOT.MATTER. Nate has an incredible way with words. His daughter, Gywneth Rose was born 15 weeks early...and his wife is on a lung transplant list because she has Cystic Fibrosis. They were trying for years to get pregnant and as her health started deteriorating...they found out they were pregnant. She continued to decline physically while she was pregnant...so they had to deliver their daughter via emergency c-section at 25 weeks...and she is now 8 weeks old. It is truly an amazing thing! So inspiring...I could barely read the blog through the tears. The videos are amazing too...just thought I'd share. Please go read now...Confessions of a CF Husband

Oh my, I can not even begin to look through all of his posts without crying. I looked at the most recent pics. of the baby and got a lump in my throat. It puts everything into perspective doesn't it? Thank you for sharing this touching story.

Does make you realize how trivial things are and how very lucky we are. I only read a few posts back- I will have to spend more time looking at the videos. Thanks for posting this- it really does put thing in perspective
