One year ago today…
I was hosting a lingerie shower for one of the staff girls who was getting married in October. We had some of my favorite foods… little ham, poppy seed sandwiches, spinach artichoke dip and a delicious chocolate cake. I barely picked at my food (which, if you know me at all, is VERY strange).
That night, after all the girls left, I took a pregnancy test and sure enough there was a faint pink line. My heart jumped… I was scared, excited, nervous… would this be the time? would I get to hold this baby in my arms?
You turned my wailing into dancing. You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks forever.
Thank you, Lord. Thank you for showing me joy like I have never known before. Thank you for our precious baby girl.
