Looking Back

Today is Mia's 2nd Birthday. 

Mia is truly a miracle.

Two years ago Mia was born with CDH.
The details of CDH are HERE on Tonya's Blog

Mia is an angel that changed all our lives forever,
but none so more than her Mommy & Daddy...

I wrote about 

Sometimes it's hard to look back at this picture.
So much mixed emotion, and heartache. 
Hungering for just a glimpse of hope. 
Struggling every moment to just hang on. 

But WOW- we have come so far, so very far indeed, and at times it seems so very, very, long ago. 

Still, every time I look at Mia I am reminded at how fragile life can be.
How precious is each and every breath, every beat of the heart, truly precious.
If I think too much about it, I cry very easily. 
But most of all it reminds me to never ever take anything for granted again, never.  
That life is truly a blessing, 

I Love you to the moon and back-

The Girasole Lady
