My last post was about Cowboys linebacker Demarcus Ware and how he and his wife endured three failed pregnancies before adopting a baby girl.
I had my wife read the story yesterday at breakfast.
Today, I am trying to deal with my wife’s miscarriage.
It is not easy, but we have two kids already. God’s given me two blessings, I can’t be mad I didn’t get the third.
A part of me is feels guilty because I would like to have a son. Maybe this is a sign that two children is all we should have, or maybe it just wasn’t the right time.
Thank goodness we have those two little rug rats that keep our minds off the loss. I haven’t had to time to have a small cry, but I think about Ware and his family, and that keeps me from tears.
They had a stillborn child two years ago and they lost another pregnancy before the Cowboys playoff game last year. I can’t feel sad knowing that.
I have a great wife. She lost the baby before I was to go on the air last night, she didn’t want to call me because I was supposed to do the 10 PM sports. I had taped the segment earlier in the night because things were not looking good. I feel bad I wasn’t there.
So today we move forward. A song by Gerald Levert called Made To Love You has gotten me through the day. I love the lyrics.
Cause I was made to love ya
My hands to touch ya, my arms to hold ya
My legs to stand, my time to spend
With you forever, I was made, made to love ya
This is a tough day. We have to respect God’s will and remember the blessings he has given our family.
Thanks for reading.
