The Best Gift Ever
My sweet friend, Leah and her precious boy Jay, gave this to me for Valentine's Day earlier this year.
When I opened it, my heart leaped with joy. But that joy was quickly overcome by fear and apprehension as I was only a few weeks pregnant with Matthew. I knew we had a long, uncertain journey ahead of us. And I had no idea what the outcome would be...
Would I have a baby to wear this precious gift?
I brought it home and put in on the crib where is stayed for a long time. Praise God, it is now washed and in Matthew's drawer, waiting for the weather to get a bit cooler and for him to get a little bigger.
My birthday was yesterday. Many people wished me a happy birthday and a few gifts were handed my way...thank you for both! It's just nice to be remembered at this age, ya know?
But I have to say, this is the "best gift ever"!
And the fact that Gib is giving me the night off tonight to catch up on some much needed sleep!
Have a great weekend!
