I told 2016 to Bite Me but then something happened

Sunday, December 11, 2016

I found out today that my SIL who was six months pregnant lost all three of her triplets last night. All three were boys, two were identical. I know they were not born yet, but for me and my husband they would have been our first nephews and we were both pretty devastated. I can't even imagine how my SIL, her partner and their daughter our dealing. They were not planned but such a huge surprise and everyone was getting ready and there to help.

My family on all sides have been through so much this year. I posted 2016 Can Bite Me on Facebook, and on a Sunday (right after my post) I received a package from the Postal service. That is pretty unusual, but when I opened the package this was inside:

Those are my kids names and my husband and I, sitting on top of "2016". It made me realize, yes bad things are happening, but there is so much to be thankful for too. I am devastated for my SIL and will try to help in any way I can, but I choose how this is going to impact me, as with everything else. I choose to be grateful, and to do what I can, but most important to take things one day at a time.
