3 Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them…
In July (after taking multiple pregnancy tests) we found out we were expecting baby number three. First was shock. How am I going to be mom to one more, when I feel like I am barely making it with two? Then there was disbelief. This is surreal. This can’t be in the plan, right? Then came the first ultrasound with the whole family in tow. That’s when it became real, and I finally became accepting. I know that can seem harsh, especially since I have suffered through miscarriages and infertility. It’s not easy.
Then I was reminded of this verse and everything changed. Life is crazy beautiful, even within the chaos. I know there will be times where I will feel like I’m not going to make it. When I want to give up. When I am overwhelmed. But aren’t we all at times? And we all make it.
I can’t wait to meet little Bubbles (named by Sophia), and start making even more memories. And I still can’t believe my youngest is now going to be a big brother to a little BOY!
