I did a post yesterday. I just pulled up my blog to update what I had written yesterday and it's gone!
G.O. N. E. How in the world does an existing post published on a blog disappear? It's not even just "saved" under all my posts. It's gone!
I'm upset. I really wanted that one. If any of you see a post called, "Do it all again" running around blog land, please let me know.
What was I going to add to it? Well, I wrote about my uncle that served in the Vietnam war and how he told my family on Monday night that he would do it all again so that D or any of my boys wouldn't have to go. I was teary. I thought about myself and the fact that I was burned. I've always said that I was glad that it had been me and not one of my beautiful young boys or my husband that was so diligent in his studies to someday provide for us. I would do it all again so that someone else wouldn't have to go through it despite knowing all that I do about what I went through. I just spoke to my sister on the phone that delivered her baby yesterday. Her baby has some complications and she is in the NICU right now. Each time I speak or text my sister I think she is dealing with this gracefully. Knowing myself and my anxiety I can't even imagine. Just before getting off the phone she said, "I'm glad it's us. We've been through this before so it's kind of like, bring it on!" I got teary again and told her what I had posted yesterday. I'm humbled at my uncle's and now sister's responses and the fact that I've heard that two times just this past week when I don't think I've ever even heard that before.
Keep my sister's baby in your prayers. I love you Land your new baby M. *Hugs*
