One Month Ago

October 16, 2011

One month ago, I started the day with fear, and ended it with hope.
One month ago, I was groggy and sore-recovering from surgery, but relieved that this pregnancy was over!
One month ago, I didn't know the results of a very important MRI.
One month ago, I welcomed a little fighter into this world.
One month ago, I became a mom... again!
One month ago, my daughter's chromosomes were in the process of being counted, and we were on the brink of finally having our answer.
One month ago, I watched the prayers of hundreds... maybe thousands... be answered.
And the answer was...

Here's your miracle:

In the last month, I have over and over again realized how blessed I am.  To the point that it easily brings me to tears.

Lily Grace you are a stubborn, little, fighter, and I love you!  You continue to bring me stress, but also joy beyond measure.

Whenever I hear the song "Blessings" I always think about your journey... "sometimes your blessings come through raindrops, sometimes your healing comes through tears... what if trials of this life, are your mercies in disguise?"

Happy 1 month birthday, baby girl!
