...Which was to become the greatest blessing of my lifetime.
Fourteen years ago, today, I went to the doctor thinking I had Mono; only to find out I was:
- in fact expecting
- that I was about to start my second trimester
- and that my whole world was going to change quicker than I could have imagined.
Hind sight = its all been for the best.
I am a better person than I would've remained, had I not had to suddenly focus on someone else's life other than my own.
Now, standing at a point where the likelihood of another child entering our life seems completely impossible, I am so grateful for the Lord's timing which I didn't understand when it was all happening.
"...Children are an heritage to the Lord..." (Psalm 127:3)
She's a good girl...the best girl...the greatest gift I could ever hope for: a beautifully smart daughter (who knows she's not only mine but a strong daughter of God) and the gift of being a mother.
This I cherish, as many wonderful women do not know this joy, and may not ever. (I wish they could know. I wish I could again.)
So, December's kind of a special month for us. It's OUR month.
- December 3rd- the day I first learned about her
- December 6th- the first time I saw her
Fourteen years later and for forever, Mini-Me will always be my favorite Christmas present! (5 years later, Mr LKP was my favorite Thanksgiving present!)
