Seems like it was yesterday when I found out I was pregnant with Sarah. I wouldn't call December 7, 1997, yesterday. I still remember the nurse coming into the room with the results. She showed me the stick (which I still have) with the "+" sign on it. I cried with joy because we had another "blessing" on the way. Don was so excited that he couldn't contain himself. We were proud to say that we had another "blessing" on the way.
Sarah is our youngest child. She will be 11 in July. She has brought so much joy into our lives and the lives of our children. Some may say that she's spoiled, but we say she's well loved.
I love encouraging woman with small children. I love to tell them to cherish their babies. Hold them close for long periods of time. Savor the moments of nursing them. Always smile at them and in return they will learn to smile back. Speak life over them. Tell them that they are world-changers. Tell them that they are leaders and not followers. One day you will look back and have no regrets.
Sarah one day when you look at this blog, I want you to know that mom thinks your special and loves you very much. Thank you for baking cookies for the family when mom couldn't.
