Wordless Wednesday: Grateful

Wow, so many words I could say about today's Wordless Wednesday post....being grateful. A year ago today (at approx 11:34 am) I heard the words I had been longing to hear for soooo long: "Congratulations, JJ...you are pregnant."

When the call came in from my RE's office, I let it go to voice mail. I have re-saved, and re-saved that message all year long--and its still there. I will need to play it and record it somewhere else eventually, but I listen to it EVERY TIME the little prompt says: "This voice mail will be deleted if you do not resave."

The lovely, kind-hearted, Suzy sent me the desk calendar sheet from June 24, 2008 about a week after we found out--and Ive kept that frame in O-man's room even before it really became his room. It means so much to me-and it will always remind us of the journey that began that day...

Through all the joyous emotions I felt that day, I remember having a hard time imagining I'd have a 4-5 month old by this time.

But look....


He's here...and I still have to pinch myself some days for this precious blessing.

I will shed many happy, grateful tears today.

To my precious little Ron/O-man...may you always know how blessed we feel to be your parents.
