7:30 am February 3rd will always be the worst moment of my life. At 7:30 I am usually getting Stone out of his crib and getting his breakfast ready….instead I was performing CPR on him along with my husband and my 4 year old daughter on our living room floor. I already knew he was gone but couldn’t face that reality. The amazing team at Conway Medical tried everything for what seemed like forever to bring him back. My heart is broken, it will never be fully healed but this is part of my process. I write this because if there is anything we can learn from Stone and his life it is this. Life is short. Too short. Too short to worry about the wrong things. Too short not to spend that extra 30 min with your children or loved one at night. Too short not to laugh or cry uncontrollably. Too short not to thank God for the moments we DO have. The moments that are not promised to us, but that are gifted. What will you do with your time on earth. Who will you touch. Will you make a difference in someone else’s life? As I sat here and read the thousands of comments and messages I am so wrapped in love and comforted to know that my baby boy served a divine purpose while he was here. Please…believe in miracles. We were all praying for a miracle while he was on that ER table yesterday morning at this time. But I had to remind myself and others that his whole life was a miracle. As a friend so touchingly wrote… Stone was a beautiful testimony. He was MY beautiful testimony. I will miss you booger bear. Every time I see a smiling face, I will be reminded of you.
