On a lighter and much happier note........

As I stated in the post before I truly believe God has the perfect timing and plan. My kids were taken care of amazingly and so well while I was having the tough time with the stone. I never had to worry who was going to watch them or if Dave had to take off work so they could be cared for - God had it planned the whole time that they would be up north visiting. It is the little things like this where I get excited to see His plan for me.
I have utterly and thoroughly enjoyed my time with my husband - I am so blessed that God gave me Dave to share my life with. He truly is my best friend, soul mate, and love!!!!!!
With that said, I have soooo missed my kids - I have thought about them growing up - it seems it was just yesterday that with my hands trembling, I ran to tell Dave I was pregnant (twice), it seems like yesterday when I was laying in bed on bedrest anticipating the delivery of these precious lives inside of me. It seems like yesterday when Andrew took his first steps and said his first word (cacka - aka cracker). It seems like yesterday when we moved Andrew into a big boy bed, telling him he was going to have a new baby sister. It seems like yesterday when I delivered Kira prematurely and she spent the first week of her life in the NICU. It seems like yesterday when I was praying for God to heal my baby girl who we almost lost to RSV at 2 months of age. It seems like yesterday when we were video-taping Kira saying her first word (bub-bles with emphasis placed on the space between the syllables :)) It seems like yesterday we had signed them up for preschool. It seems like yesterday when I could rock them and hold them in my arms.
Truly our lives are but a fleeting moment but I thank God constantly for allowing me to see these 2 amazing lives grow. I pray for God to continue to draw them near to Him, that they would grow to love Him and serve Him only. Yes, I am so excited to hold these precious children in my arms again and thank God for blessing me and giving me the honor to be their mother.

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
