I took a pregnancy test
it was positive. At 3:30 am
the following morning
I lost it.
There were signs.
Nothing definite and I wanted to believe
everything would be okay. But it wasn't okay.
It had happened before but no one is ever prepared for something
like this. No one. It was early, I am thankful for that and really, I am thankful
to God for the natural way of things. His ways are best and I know this - it's still hard.
we both have grieved.
My husband, bless his heart, has
been so patient, so helpful, so attentive.
I'm so thankful for him and my two beautiful boys
who, in the midst of all the heart-break, taught themselves how
to go play together and were so good while I would lay on the couch,
or sit in my chair as I took the time to be still and let the hurt pass me by.
be more sure,
at this point, as to
why things like this happen.
But what I do know, is that my
heart is even more thankful for my brown-
eyed healthy boys, even more thankful for sisters,
friends and mamas, even more thankful for a husband who
always knows just what to say and just when to say it - Truly Thankful.
I'm going to
take a break and
I want you all to know
I love you dearly and I'm off
to go on a vacation with my family and
also welcome my sister and her daughter as they
are moving in with us and I am SO excited for this change.
So lots of things coming up and in a few weeks from now, I'll be
back with lots of new pictures, new stories, new beginnings to share... with you.
is my shepherd;
I shall not want. 2 He
maketh me to lie down in green
pastures: he leadeth me beside the still
waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea,
though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will
fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest
my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in
the house of the Lord for ever and ever.
Psalm 23: 1-6
