The Things That Matter Most

I'm not really sure how to say this. I've rewritten this several time. Hubby and I have been praying and asking God for a child for 11 months now and his answer has finally been 'yes'!
We are expecting! I'm pregnant and I'm going to be a mother! 
I can honestly say that the first thing I did was fall to my knees, cry, cry more, thank God about 100 times and cry more... in the bathroom. Then I showed John a video I made a while back for him to announce that I was pregnant. He really liked it though I think he had a hunch because he was grinning ear to ear the whole time. :P 

There is a lot of stuff going on in our lives right now. We don't have a house, our lease is up in Dec., we owe a lot of people a lot of stuff, I'm just getting my photography business up and running, I'm working on my Etsy shop still, We have a wedding to go to soon, I think to myself that there is a lot to do and still be done but this is GODS timing and I could not be more blessed. All I have ever wanted was an old house with lots of children running around and bring life to every bit of it, to be a mother, make cookies in the kitchen, watch Disney movies on Friday nights, chase children around a big yard, and be called a good wife and mommy. So yeah, life is still going to have bumps in the road but if God has lead us this far and given us so much, I have faith he will care for us all the days of our lives and continue to bless this house. And in the end, these are the things that matter most! 


  1. Yep...Don't know if I'm totally READY to be 'Grandma' yet, but I'm ABSOLUTELY thrilled for you and John, and I'm excited about sharing this adventure with you, so ready or not, I'm going to jump in with both feet and be the best Grandma EVER! :)
