One Year Ago Today

One year ago today, I went into my restroom to take a pregnancy test.

I wasn't overly optimistic. I think I was just trying to protect myself in case it came out negative.

But it didn't. I saw those two blue lines that I had been waiting months to see.

I remember the way my heart immediately started racing. I threw open the bathroom door, called out to Derek, showed him the test, said "I think we're pregnant," and promptly started crying.

I wasn't crying because I was sad, but because I was so happy. Words can't express the feeling I had the moment that test turned positive.

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life."
Proverbs 13:12

Wyatt was only the size of a grain of rice, and I already loved him so much. Now we're here a year later, and I can't imagine not being his mom.

"He settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.

Praise the LORD."

Psalm 113:9

This day last year was one of the happiest days of my life. The Lord has blessed us beyond measure, and I can't thank Him enough for the gift He has given us!

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him."

1 Samuel 1:27
