My Kneecaps are gettin' Wore out

I've been praying a lot these days for a couple of my kids. Not that I don't pray for all of them every day-it's just that sometimes there are a few that need some extra pleading from their mom to the heavens above....(God listens to the pleadings of mothers, right?)
This is a picture of my sweet girl moments after she told us:

"I'm Pregnant!"

Sadly, it was not to be.

It has been so hard to watch her suffer through the loss of this pregnancy. It happened to me years ago and it's awful to watch a child suffer through the same thing-a couple of my other girls had the same experience. She wrote about it beautifully in her blog, quoting a scripture,

D&C 58:3 "Ye cannot behold with your natural eyes, for the present time, the design of your God concerning those things which shall come hereafter, and the glory which shall follow after much tribulation."

It's hard for a mother to watch her children suffer pain and distress. It's almost more than I can bear. Somehow it's easier to suffer my own pain and distress than to watch my kids suffer..

Oh God, how didst thou watch thy Only Begotten Son suffer and die for me?

Sweet Jess! It's so hard to lose a baby, but it makes us appreciate life so much more. I pray that this will be only a moment and that happy news will be on the horizon soon. Until then we will send love and thoughts and prayers her way!
You might want consider getting knee pads...I don't think it's
going to let up....always someone or something to pray about or for. :-)
