Writer's Workshop: The Last Time My Heart Melted


The last time that my heart melted, I mean REALLY melted,  was when my little RJ was born, just 16 months ago.  He was extremely premature arriving a whole three months early and weighing in at 1lb. 5oz.  He is truly our little miracle.

My husband and I had already lost two other little boys due to a condition that I was not aware of until RJ was coming along.  Papa Bear and I prayed constantly for God to deliver this little one safely into our arms.

RJ stayed in the hospital for 3 months after his birth fighting for his life, we battled with everything from a hole in his heart to dealing with a hernia.  It was tough, but with God's grace and strength, RJ pulled through with flying colors.
And stole my heart!

Needless to say, I can't think of a better example of my heart melting than this little guy right here.

My little Angel!

I'm linking up over at Mama's Losin It for her awesome Writer's Workshop, so stop by to read what other folks are writing about.
