It's been an emotional couple of days. Today little Travis Leo was laid to rest. My thoughts have been with him and his family. I can't even begin to imagine what they have been through. I pray that they will find a little bit of peace in all of this.

My thoughts have also been with my friend Danae, who will soon be celebrating the one year anniversary of the birth and death of their son Jeffrey. His short life has had such a deep impact on me. I pray that Danae will have the strength to endure this coming month.

I haven't been sleeping well. Between all these thoughts running through my head and fussy kids, I feel drained. There seems to be such sadness all around me. I try not to think-to just turn it all off. But I can't.

It's times like this when I rely on my faith to get me through. Families are forever. That faith gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Without that faith I don't know if I could go on. I don't know if I would want to go on. In it I find my strength.

Sarah, hugs to you. I have been feeling the same thing with the passing of baby Travis. It's so unfair. I am so sorry for your friend. I hope that she can somehow find peace. You need to start taking care of yourself and try to relax and get some rest. I know that is easier said then done. HUGS!
