Two weeks and one day
We have two weeks and one day left before our baby girl makes her grand entrance into this world. We have chosen September 20th for her birthday. Can't wait to think of all the fun things we can do next year for her :-) I am so glad that we have made the decisions we did up to this point. I cannot imagine our family being able to cope any other way than just taking every moment with her and loving it. She is such a precious girl and deserves every ounce of love we can give her and this is the only way we knew how. To hold her close and love her for as long as we possibly could. We are so blessed to have this opportunity. I still wish time would stop but I am getting more excited to see my cute little button and it is helping to ease the stress that I feel with her date getting closer. It is so amazing how mindful the Lord is of me and my desires. And amazing how things are planned just right. I am shown that more and more every day. I have never felt closer to Him than I do right now. I truly feel the love of my Savior every day that I feel discouraged or feel like my heart couldn't take it any more. I have a much deeper appreciation for the atonement and all this pain that my Savior went through so that I could have the opportunity to have Joy later in her perfect little body "until she reaches the stature of her spirit". How amazing is that? The best gift I ever received was being sealed to my family, my spouse and my children for eternity. Gods plan for the family is amazing.
