Mom...


With Mother's Day tomorrow, I've been trying my best to keep my eyes fixed on the prize...a baby resulting from this next IVF procedure.

I had a doctor's appointment this morning to check on our progress and all went well. Praise the LORD for that!

Around noon, I had a knock at the door and the FedEx guy was there to deliver a package. I honestly thought he must have the wrong address because I hadn't ordered anything. But the package clearly had my name on it. So  I opened it and this is what was inside...


Chocolate covered strawberries...YUMMO!


But the card inside the box was a MILLION times better than the strawberries...


I am STILL speechless over the sweet words on this card. These words made me realize the reason I want to have a baby so much...I want David and I to be the parents that my mom and dad were (and still are) to me...ALWAYS loving, supportive, and giving.

I'm so ready to be a mom.

Such a lovely sentiment! And it really is true! A child doesn't need anything more from his parents than to feel wanted and loved. Your "someday baby" is already so very lucky.
