Enjoy each moment....

This week has been a whirlwind at work. I teach pre k, as some of you know. Wednesday I found out that a little girl in the other class has LEUKEMIA. I saw her Monday and Tuesday and she looked tired, but most of the kids did because we came back from a long holiday. I asked her if she was okay and she just smiled at me. Her mom took her to the doctor and within 2 hours they told her she had leukemia. Within 24 hours she was on a plane to St. Jude's hospital. She will be there for 6 weeks. Her mom went with her. Her dad is tying things up at home and then he and the 2 year-old son will make the journey to Tennessee. She will not be able to come back to school for 6 months.
I cannot believe how quick someone's life can change...in an instant! They suspected that she had a cold or sinus problems or something. They never expected to hear that their child had CANCER. Please keep them in your prayers!! This has made me appreciate life even more. It has made me realize that I shouldn't put all my focus on fertility treatments. I need to focus more on my husband, family, and GOD!! The rest will come when it's time. If I don't focus on those things and something happens to someone that I love then I will be DEVASTATED!! My New Year's resolution is to enjoy every day, and worry about that day, not the past or the future!!

On that note...my period started today so I will go to the doctor in 2 days to start the clomid challenge test. One step closer to IVF. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
