Bustling Boys

I have spent two days in two different pediatric specialists' offices with Garrett over the past two weeks. These two visits have been eye-openers for me.

When I walked into these offices, I was faced with children with special needs. Families faced with severe medical needs. Children who are unable to walk, talk, play, or eat without assistance.

And there I sat with my three healthy boys. I felt uncomfortable. Not because I don't "deserve" to be there, but because I don't "deserve" healthy children.

I am humbled. I am not naive enough to think that there are not millions of sick or hurt kids in this world. But I was forced to face them and their parents recently.

May I never take another day with my bustling boys for granted.
