In the Blink of an Eye

In the blink of an eye…

  1. You go from hugging your Granddaddy goodbye and telling him to stay healthy until Thanksgiving when he’ll meet his namesake…

    To praying that his entry into the Kingdom would be as peaceful and comfortable as possible. That he would send kisses from Heaven to that little boy trying to bust out of your womb too early.

  2. You go from being thankful that your bedrest buddy is not in an “emergency situation yet”…

    To praying for her safety and strength as she is contracting 2minutes apart. And praying for the new reality of being released from bedrest but having a preemie in the NICU and 3 older kids at home.

  3. You go from returning home from a last trip to see friends and family before your newest addition arrives in 6weeks…

    To spending 2 days in the hospital to being released on bedrest.

  4. You go from the daily grind of trying to keep up with your 2.5 year old while you are 32 weeks pregnant…

    To having to watch your husband and daughter take on the grind by themselves.

  5. You go from protecting and prioritizing your 2.5 year old daughter because she doesn’t have the miraculous womb nourishing her and protecting her anymore…

    To prioritizing and protecting your 33week son in utero because your uterus is angry and trying to evict him too early.

  6. You go from twirling with your little princess…

    To sending her off on play dates or to the park with a new babysitter so that you can lay in bed trying to stave off contractions.

  7. You go from deferring to your sister as the master of wit and writing…

    To finding your own voice while co-blogging with her.

  8. You go from thinking you know what’s next…

    To realizing you have no idea. All the while knowing that God is loving and holding you through it all.
