You know sometimes you wonder why you bother in life. All you seem to do sometimes is beat your head against a brick wall to no avail…

This week we were given some bad news yet again. A very precious little man died on Sunday, just after his second birthday.
Instead of thinking what a waste of a life, I thought how wonderful it was that he was introduced into our lives. He was a beautiful little man with a gorgeous smile and he played the best pat a cake games anyone could wish for.

I could always feel sorry for the two most wonderful people who chose to foster him. Not only had they lost their own daughter a couple of years ago but they have to go through the same pain and torment with this little man, but I can’t. I can say I only feel pride that I know these two people and their kids. They have shown humility and bravery and a love for all kids, no matter how handicapped they are. They are the most unassuming couple I have ever known. She has a special gift, even though she thinks she doesn’t. The love that radiates from her is overwhelming and I can only think that this little man had the best part of his life with this special family.

So I suppose it goes back to my opening statement, no matter how hard you think it is, you’ve only got to look around and see the wonders around you. Tom and Harry shouldn’t be here by rights. They’ve done everything to defy the odds. Yes it’s tiring and bloody hard work sometimes, but you’ve only got to look at them and think what life would be like without them and I know which one I prefer. Again they’re like this little man. They teach us a lesson that life shouldn’t be taken for granted and that the love and innocence they bring into this world is all that is needed really.
