Mother's Ultimate Sacrifice For Newborn...

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. 
A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child..

I read this on the yahoo online news yesterday.  Heartbreaking and tear wrenching is 
not even close to describe what you will feel after hearing what this young mother
 did in order to give life to her now newborn baby girl.

I am not one to second guess her decision.  many will say that I am not a mother so I have
 no idea what this decision involves and you are probably right.  I read the article, I 
listened to the mother and yes I also balled my eyes out because it is unfair.
   Life is UNFAIR quite often and the most we can do is just sit back 
and let the chips fall where they may.  many a times we do not have 
control of what will happen to us.

After I finished, I wiped away the tears and I just sat thinking for a moment.  Then 
to myself I said, "wrong decision"  Now probably everyone will think I am a cold
and selfish person who has no idea what it is like to be a mother. That's
OK, like you we are all entitled to our opinion.  Me I thought of the
child she has now.  A 6 year old child she has decided to leave.

The story goes like this:

A young mom learns she has bone cancer while she was just 10 weeks pregnant.
Doctors told her that if she does not start treatment immediately she is likely to die. She
refuses the treatment in order to give the baby girl she is carrying a chance to live.  The baby
is born healthy, and mom starts treatment, but is given just one more year to live.  Now two kids orphans.

You can read all about it.  Just click on the above link.  My heart is breaking for that entire
family. What a difficult decision she made. You know the saying, there is no stronger 
love in this world than the love a mother feels for her children.  She cries for them, 
she worries about them, she would die for them.  This mom did just that.

On a lighter note we had a a good day.  Got many things accomplished, one
of those being buying a cool car for a customers's daughter.

She is Norwegian and will be working for the next year in Disney,
here in Florida.  Someone will be very happy.

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.
Remember in life there are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going.

A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. 
It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes 
down remorselessly all that stands in its path...
