I began today thinking about how I was spending it two years ago. Vomiting. With. Every. Single. Contraction. Thankful for my mom and hubby who stayed with me...I am not a dainty "vomiter." Does such a thing exist? 12 hours of vomiting. Whew! Makes me tired to even remember.
And then I think....wow, two years! How did that happen? I know it sounds cliche but time really does fly!
And then I am overwhelmed with God's goodness. He truly does open wombs. Remember my Dr talked to me about a hysterectomy at 27? Mother's Day Weekend? Remember I tried Clomid? Accupuncture? Chiropractic? Gluten Free?
And this child...
Oh yes, you shaped her first inside, then out; you formed her in my womb. I think you, High God-you're breathtaking! Body and soul, she is marvelously made. I worship in adoration-what a creation! You know her inside and out, You know every bone in her body; You know exactly how she was made, bit by bit, how she was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, You watched her grow from conception to birth; all the stages of her life were spread about before You, The days of her life all prepared before she even lived one day.
Psalm 139: 13-16 The Message Personalized for special birthday prayers.
God is good. All the time. He was good during our past infertility. He is good in our current infertility. He is good on the birthday of our sweet girl.
And while I am thinking and reflecting on these things...I am preparing for a celebration. Of life.
