Feeling Blessed

Today a young man died of Osteosarcoma. I did not know him, I did not know of him either. I just found out about him today and his story touched me.
When a young life is taken so early it brings things into perspective. It reminds us of our healthy children and how lucky we are to tuck them in knowing that they don't hurt and that when we wake them in the morning they'll spring to life (or slowly come alive) and you'll face nothing but the challenges of being a Mom and helping him navigate life. No matter how hard his life is, how challenging it is... he is alive, and for that I am grateful. Hug your kids tight tonight and know that not every Mom is as lucky as we are .
This is Zach Sobiech, he was just a few months older than GP when he died.
Kind of puts things into perspective. He wrote a song and leaves a legacy of love. What a kid; I am sure his mom is hurting tonight, but she must be proud of the  young man he became. RIP Zach. His You tube video is below. Just follow the link. It's worth it.
