Blessings in three

Ok, it's time to thank the good spirits that I have three happy, healthy triplets in my life. I am blessed. Sure, they are sick again. Sure, it might be hand, foot and mouth disease (oh that's a real disease folks!) but overall we are strong, mentally and physically.

I can't be funny because several of my triplet mom friends are struggling with new developments in their triplets' lives. They all love their kids as much as I do mine, and they will love them regardless of what pops up but one has to feel extremely lucky to come through the multiple birth process with three completely healthy kids.

There are so many things that can go wrong. And in addition, when you have 3 at once, your statistical chances of having one with a genetic defect are higher than when you have one, right? So it's scary. You could get a mixed bag genetically, and then, since they are usually born premature you have damage due to that, developmental delays, physical damage during the birthing process, etc.

So many things could have 'gone wrong.' But I ended up with three wonderful, bright, healthy kids. I am counting my blessings today. That's all I've got to do.


  1. yep; counting blessings is a good thing to do most days

    sorry your kids are a bit under the weather though


  2. I hope they feel better soon! I thank everyday that my boys are healthy.

  3. That's such a wonderful description of how wonderfully blessed you are. You are quite a lucky gal to have three angels. Thanks for sharing this!

  4. Well said Mira, and so true. I hugged my babies a little tighter tonight myself. I too am counting my blessings.

  5. ditto. Well said, Mira. My biggest problem is LaLa's refusal to poop on his own. In the grand scheme of things, nothing really.
