MAN!!!! IT IS ALMOST HERE! I can hardly believe we will be holding little Solie Koket is just a matter of days now! YIKERS! I am all over the place with emotions...One of them being kind of short tempered...(Sorry Eric!) I think it is all of the madness and not sure what to do with it!
Today was just the BEST day! I was scheduled to go to lunch with my friends Tracie and Raelenna and when I got there...A BIG OLD SURPRISE PARTY! Anyone who knows me well, knows I LOVE a party...But a surprise party is one of my most favorite things!!! It was such a great surprise! Thanks to all the mommas (and soon to be momma Carrie!) who made it happen for me.
How cool that God brings together such a great group of women. All so unique in their own ways...I love it and remember the days I prayed that God would give me s few true friends. And now I see how he has blessed me far beyond that dream. I was so loved on today by people. Now if one of those hot mommas will send me a few pics I will post them.
We even had red velvet cake with Solie's name on it...I celebrated for the both of us having 2 pieces of cake today...One at the party, and the second as I watched Biggest Loser...Is that wrong? It felt wrong, but also like complete bliss.
God has provided this crazy huge blessing on our lives of giving us another baby girl and I do not want to lose sight of our goal with all of the franzy of planning and sorting our schedules and details.
So wild how sometimes God gives me a CRAZY HUGE blessing, and then I have no clue how to be appropriately thankful...so I end up sitting eating cake on the couch! It gets kind of overwhelming sometimes when I see what God has given me...Knowing that I am not worthy of all of this goodness.
I am not trying to get on a soap box, I am just blown away by what has taken place in the past 3 months.
I know you are all DYING to see pics of this little miss sunshine! I am DYING to post them...but have been asked by our agency to wait until we get back home with her...Then you are stuck with us...All of us and our photo overload!
How do I put into words what I am feeling? Man, I just have no clue..and no words...Which is rare for me.
God is faithful...Through triumphs and struggles. he will never leave us or foresake us.
Thank you God for this wild wild ride! My faith has been tested and strengthened and I lean on you more today than yesterday.
And thank you to all of you all over the states that have chosen to follow our journey and love this child home. We feel the love and I know Solie Koket does also.
Big Big Big Love-
