Why am I so lucky?

So today, I came across Lindsey Nicole Martinez’s story (Warning: severe heartbreak).

It brought me to tears.  I have three children, all of whom are more precious than any tangible thing in the world to me.  Their individual existences bring me immense joy beyond measure.  Each one of them is like an ocean of happiness that I get to sit near and look over.  I would reshape the shoreline to make their lives easier.

I’m just so happy to be a part of their lives, and I am immensely blessed by them.  I never understood why people cared so much about their children until I had mine…

That’s not to say that they should be spoiled, or ignorant of the cruelties of the world.  My goal is to make them tough, and to help them survive without me.  I wish I didn’t have to do that.
