what God gives, He takes.
the boy celebrated his 11th birthday on friday (actual date today). i know for sure he likes nothing better than to have his clique to share with. this group grew up together in the same neighbourhood, attends the same church & goes to the same school. presumably they'll be BFFs in due time.
coincidentally, the obstetricians listed 4 patients for C-section today. my thoughts went to the boy because these babies will share the same birthday with him. although all four were successfully delivered, one inexplicably suffered a respiratory problem soon after birth & eventually succumbed. imagine - one moment the kid was crying the lungs out & then suddenly, the breathing stopped. one moment, there was life & the next, there was none.
it did put a damper on my day but some things are just beyond human comprehension.
to the 3 lovely babies borned today, I wish you well & pray you'd grow up to be useful citizens & make your parents proud.
to the 4th, may your soul rest in peace for you are in a better place now. amen.
