1 day until....

I have no words of wisdom today. I am just trying to keep busy and get the house clean for my SIL who is awesome and is helping us out by staying with Grayson while we are in the hospital and then will be here to help out as needed for the next week or so after we get home.

These pics were taken the other day at Lowes. Grayson loves tractors in part because my dad is a heavy equipment mechanic and sends him tractor "toys". (They are still to heavy for G to really play with but he tries. they are more like collectables )

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers that all of you are sending our way. We really appreciate it. And keep 'em coming. I could use the strength today. :)

Just want you to know that all four of you are in my thoughts today! I stop by here daily - usually silently - but today I want you to know I've been here!

Our prayers are with you, and you are definitely in our thoughts. You are going through one of the hardest things for a family. I don't know why having children is full of such intense joy and sometime such intense grief. But when Ed and I go through the hard parts, we look at our little family and the contrast makes the little joys so much sweeter and more obvious.

The trial you are going through right now is much harder, but I can feel for you in some sense. We had yet another adoption fall through this week, just weeks from the due date. I will have to return cribs, strollers, etc. I will have to figure out just what do to with the Halloween costume I bought ahead of time and the baby blankets I made. It seems silly to keep them, but it is so hard to give them away.

I prayed to my Heavenly Father that he would help me know where to put the grief that I felt and he blessed me with a tremendous peace. I then looked at little David and realized what an absolute miracle it was that he was here. The ache of waiting six years for a child and the continual roller coaster that we live on to have more children, makes me appreciate David in ways that I would have never been capable before. Some of my sweetest joys have only been possible after some of my most intense griefs.

I pray that your time with Jonathan will be sweet and that his presence in your life will shine an extra light on all your future joys.
Love, Angie

First of all, Grayson is one of the cutest little guys on a tractor!

Secondly, I want to tell you that I have been bragging about you to my friends. Bragging that I know this mother who has more strength and grace than I could ever dream of mustering up.

As for tomorrow, I don't think a pep talk is exactly appropriate, but I know your strenth, grace, and all the people behind you will make this day exactly as it should be.

The boys and I will be sending up prayers for you and your family tomorrow.
