Today I prayed, and I will pray again tomorrow

Today I prayed.

And today it shocked me how little I pray for the babies who have Spina Bifida. The mommy's who believe they have the right to decide if their child lives or not.

Sometimes its easy to stay in my happy little bubble, assuming that no one would ever think that these children should not have a chance at life. An amazing life might I add.

Today helped me realize how much I should be praying, not just once a year or once when someone really shakes me out of my little bubble. But continually and constantly. Knowing that God listens.

There are so many reminders in my life of how amazing these children are. How completely 100% worth it they are!

Ive gotten over 70 orders for necklaces and bracelets from my other blog and I've loved it. Its so amazing to sit there and look at all these little circles with children's name on them. Children's whose parents chose life. Its been amazing to look at all the words. Brave, perspective, fearless, and can. Realize how much meaning those words have!

100% worth it!

This week if your friends with me on facebook You know that ive been working on a painting for the Kinetic Kids (sports programed for handicapped children) silent auction. A picture that really does mean so much to me because if though some might look at Tobys arm crutches as a sign of being DISabled. I see them as a sign of being ABLE! I sign of how far weve come and how hard weve worked.

100% worth it!!

And so I will keep praying even after today is done. I will keep praying that these mommies, daddies, doctors, grandmas, brothers and sisters will realize how 100% worth it these children are!!

I live in that bubble with you. It's so hard to think about all the others who don't choose life.
