Ya don't know what you got till it's gone...

I have come to appreciate many things since we have experienced the loss of our precious Hezekiah. I am thankful that I have come to realize even more how precious my 7 children are and how some things I will miss that now seem overwhelming.

I appreciate:

Last week when we were taking our puppy for a walk up the road she went poo. Before I got to clean it up our 3 yr old with all her might jumped in the air and right on top of it smiling from ear to ear.

On our downstairs toilet we have a sprayer attachement that sprays the poo off of cloth diapers. Our 3 yr old got into it today and covered the bathroom floor and walls with water. It looked like a mini flood. I can only imagine the fun she was having in those few seconds alone. (Yes, I did tell her to NEVER do that again)

spilled milk

finger prints on the walls

mud all over the brand new shoes

finding folded clean clothes in the dirty hampers...

These things are annoying as any Mother knows but I am so thankful for things like this because I know the taste of not having one of my children here. I'd much rather have these annoying things to teach my children than not to have them at all.

I believe it to be true that ya don't know what you got till it's gone...missin you so deeply still Hezekiah!

What are you thankful for?
