You go through life jumping hoops and achieving goals and in a way expect it to go in a certain pattern. Born, grow up, meet someone , get married, have kids, then grand kids etc etc.
I know life isn't so black and white. I know that for sure as i didn't expect Steve to have a stroke at 48 and not able to work again. But you take what life throws at you and get on with it don't you?
My youngest daughter in law has PKU. Its a life threatening disease that meant she may never had children but until today shes lived with that hope.
She went to the specialist today who confirmed that she will not be able to have a baby and my heart is breaking for her. She feels “different” to other girls, she said she feels she cant give my son what he wants and feels a failure.
How can you put into words how special she is to us all. How much we love her and how much more important it is to have her alive and well in our lives .
They are travelling up to see us this weekend and she is going to get the biggest hug i can find.
Yes I am hurting for her and in a way i feel robbed too. I would have loved to have been a Grandma but no way will she ever hear that from me.
Be kind to one another this weekend , God bless you .
