As the 23rd and the 26th of October approach, I'm reflecting on the past 2 years. The 23rd. was the day we received the phone call that would change our lives forever. On the 26th, we met the beautiful young lady who would give us the most special gift we could ever be blessed with. However, we chose to keep this a very private matter, basically only telling our immediate families and a couple friends! I've never been able to keep a secret, not to mention one that was SO EXCITING! I even looked back in my blog archives, and although I didn't write often, I never even slipped any details! Here's my post from Oct. 29, 2009

"I just realized it's been that long since I've updated my blog. We've been busy helping my Sister and Bro-in-law move into their new house. Working lots, finishing our new bathroom, and spending time with family. (DID I MENTION BUYING NURSERY FURNITURE, PRINTING DIRECTIONS TO THE HOSPITAL, WASHING ITTY BITTY BABY CLOTHES, STERILIZING BOTTLES, AND FINALIZING PLANS????)

Here's some pictures of the awesome job my Hubby, Dad, and Brother did on our new bathroom!
Love it!

It's so nice to finally have 2 bathrooms in the house, even if we don't want to use the old one at all!!!
Bathrooms? Who cares about that. WE HAVE A BABY ON THE WAYYYYYY!!!!!!!
(That's what I really wanted to say!)

"I recently started reading the Prayer of Jabez. I remember people talking about it before, but never got interested enough to actually read it and study it. I started reading the words everyday last week. It's pretty amazing. Today, I started reading the study guide. I already feel it's going to do great things for us. My favorite line I read today says,
"Think of it this way: instead of standing near the river's edge, asking for a cup of water to get you through each day, you'll do something unthinkable- you will take the little prayer with the giant prize, and jump into the river! At that moment, you will begin to let the loving currents of God's grace and power carry you along. God's great plan for you will surround you and sweep you forward into the profoundly important and satisfying life He has waiting."
-Bruce Wilkinson

The prayer is found in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 if you're interested.

Oh, Bless me indeed!"

Man, I'm still impressed I didn't burst at the seams as I withheld such wonderful news! Hee hee hee! I love looking back and putting our journey into perspective. I wouldn't change a thing.
