They need their momma....


It has been a very rough week. Keiths moms has been in the ICU, we didnt know if she was going to pull through. All I could think of is, how are we going to explain another death to our children? We have had 5 deaths in under 2 years. Our kids have been through alot of trauma, but they are amazing, because they know what happens, they have strong testimonies. They know that Heavenly Father loves them. After this week, I hope they know how much their momma loves them.

Keith and I spent quite a few days, back and forth to St Louis, leaving the kids with my parents, so that they would be safe. Long days. Im not used to being away from my babies. They were excellent though, no tears, no momma i want you to stay, nothing like that. lol. They were happy we were going. But today was a different story.

Today is the first day, where daddy has gone back to work, and momma was here all day with her babies. I was theirs all day long. As I was working on trying to get our house put back together, I would hear little voices say, " i love you momma" just out of the blue. While folding laundry, I had sweet little arms wrapped around me hugging me. While making lunch, i had many little helpers, happy to have lunch in their home, with their momma. You see, my kids need their momma. :)

I know what you mean. Mine have dealt with two deaths just in the last 6 months. I'm glad you could be there for them, and they were so happy to be with you.
