Today was such a happy day. And you know what? Nothing great or special happened. It was just happy. I've actually had lots of happy, blessed moments in the past week (and a few sad ones too, of course!) but today, the whole day was perfectly happy. A caring and helpful husband, sweet students, a great morning workout and, even though I didn't see or hear them, lots of prayers on my behalf. All of it made for a perfectly wonderful day.
This unexpected part of our journey towards parenthood has been pretty emotional, but so many of the emotions and tears have come because of the gratitude I have, an understanding of a perfect plan for our family, and the overwhelming love that I've felt. Blessed and grateful can only begin to describe.
So thanks. Thank you for all of your sweet messages, kind and encouraging words and the many, many prayers you have offered for us. It's those things, particularly the divine, heavenly help, that have already healed my heart and made today a truly happy day. I can't wait for tomorrow!
