Sometimes.......

......you are made aware of what you take for granted in your every day life.

Whilst browsing on Pinterest I came upon this picture below that made my heart surge. 

(E.B ing A mommy)


A tale of a little boy.....and a mother's love

It took me here

then here

My heart broke

My eyes streamed and my chest felt heavy with the weight of a mothers love for her child

Sometimes life seems so unfair

  1. I can't stop crying now. I have never heard of this disease and I worked in a hospital for 5 years. IT is so sad I don't think I could live through something like this I truly pray for Tripp's mother to stay strong and remember her baby boy is no longer in pain an is in heaven waiting on her. Even though this is so so sad it goes to show how thankful we should be in life. We have been trying to conceive for almost 5 years. A year ago in Feb. I miscarried. I keep telling mself that God took my little baby before I even got to meet him because something like this was wrong with him and I never wanted my child to suffer. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. oh my such love and care- such suffering and heart ache too... ;0(
    A friend at my old pre school lost her son to a tragic illness-went from a perfectly fine 20 month to loosing his battle... life is cruel and sad...but at least they are at peace and not in incredible pain x

  4. Life is very unfair sometimes. Stories like the one this brave mother has shared serve a very valuable purpose in making us all stand and take stock and feel relieved that we have children who have never known this sort of agony, that we as mothers have never known this agony.

    I want to leave Courtney a message but I can't find the words. I will leave her a message though, I'll have a think, because she needs to know her story of loving Tripp has touched my heart and that some stranger across the pond has her in her thoughts. Every word I write sounds trite but they are sincere.

  18. A very upsetting end to a most inspirational blog. What an incredible mother she is. And Tripp was so gorgeous. He was born two weeks before my son, so this is very hard hitting at the moment.
    In tears. I can't believe a little boy had to suffer so much. And now Courtney is having to readjust to everything without him. Utterly painful.

  25. Very very touching story....Really makes one appreciate and be grateful for what they have in life....Not coming home with my first born son was so very very sad, yet I also think at times has taught me so much about life, love, friendships etc. I treasure those I have around me and when ever I feel a little grumpy about my life, I always think of my little baby and how he didn't even get a chance at life and so give a little smile, give a little thanks that he came into mine albeit for a very short time, to help teach me how to appreciate. Big hugs to you xxxx

  26. Can't find words to describe how i feel when i read this.
    It's so hard to have a child that ill.
    It's so hard losing your child.
    Thank you for sharing this in a post, it's so real.

    Now, i do know how it feels when you own child has a skindisease and
    look different than other kids...but as long as that child isn't that ill and
    can go to school and can play outside and will be alive...that's a great blessing.

    So i'm a blessed mum.

    I have great respect for Tripp's mum, he was a cute babyboy and how hard must
    this be for her.

    xx
