It has been so incredibly crazy trying to get back into the swing of things after our 10 day cross-country drive but I promise a vacation post is coming soon!! We had such a fabulous, relaxing time - much needed, I might add. I have tons of pics and stories, I just need to get my act together to blog about them.
But in the meantime, I would like to share that 2 of our friends had their little miracle girl today!!! Congratulations, y'all! We are so thrilled about your little blessing.
I must say when I saw the pictures posted today, I just started sobbing. For all good reasons. No resentment, jealously or anything like that.
Just simple, joyful crying.
They actually experienced the EXACT SAME problems that Matt & I have faced, so to see two people, whom we actually know, go down the same path we are about to embark on, AND have success in such an awesome way --- well, WOW.
There are no words.
Selfishly, it gives me tremendous peace and comfort, knowing that we are doing the perfect thing for us. I am certain of that today more than ever.
And now I will repeat a scripture that my friend Amy has consistently reminded me of during our journey:
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11)
Blessings to our sweet little friends and their sweet new arrival!
