5 Min Friday- One Month

One month.
 Just one.
So much can change is such a short time. We went from being a family of 5 to a family of 6. Sweet girl entered our world a month ago.

10 months ago when that little stick had a positive sign, I cried. I cried and then called my husband and then cried some more. I didn't believe it. How could I handle ANOTHER baby (or TWO)? I had a 2 and a half year old and twin 16 month olds. Hubby brought home more pregnancy tests- 5 of them, which all said the same thing- our life was changing again!
I cried.
How would I go grocery shopping if it was twins again? Would I have to have another c-section? Would this baby (or two) be healthy?
I cried and call my friend- the one I KNEW would give me support and say "Yay!! What a blessing! You will be just fine." And after she said all that, I cried again, not because I was scared (ok maybe a little) but because I knew she was right- what a blessing! And a month ago that sweet blessing came into our lives- and I cried some more!

  1. Praises to the Giver of good and perfect gifts! What a blessing your little girl must be to such an already full family. I'm sure she is bringing some changes- both bitter and sweet, but fruitful either way. May God strengthen you, and remind you daily that He is at work in your life and the little ones. Stopped by from LisaJo's :)
