The past few weeks our church has been doing a series called Be Happy. I have enjoyed every single week and it has resignated with me. Most of you know last weeks doctor appointment didn’t go well. Then the blood tests did not go well either. The doctor said he was pretty sure I was miscarrying, but wanted to do an ultrasound on Wednesday just to be sure.
Monday evening when I learned about the blood test I could have decided to sulk around and lay in bed. Instead I took the advice of our pastor. He said that grateful people are happy people and I wanted to be happy. I took to Facebook and listed the things I am grateful for in my life.
God, who has a plan for our family, even if I don’t understand it.
Kenny, who has been so supportive the last few days.
My amazing boys that can put a smile on my face no matter what.
My friends and family that have prayed for and provided for our family.
My blog so that I have somewhere to share my thoughts and to reach out to others.
Our church that has helped guide us closer to God.
A house that provides shelter.
Food on our table.
Insurance that covers most of our medical expenses.
I decided that no matter what happened God was in control and that I should be grateful for the amazing things I have in my life already. That I should treat each day as a gift from God. Tomorrow is not promised, therefore I should enjoy each day. I then decided to go outside and spend time with my incredible boys in the beautiful weather. It was perfect.
Today I went back to the doctor and he was not very positive at all. He told me if we didn’t see a baby in my womb then we would discuss treatment options. To his surprise there was a baby in there and a little flicker of a heart beat. I was truly amazed and ecstatic. I shed tears of joy.
Here is our little bean at 6 weeks and 4 days. Giving us a due date of November 21st.
As I side not I raised the goal on our Fundraising Site because I found out we have to pay $750 out of pocket for Carsyn’s new Gait Trainer.
