The Big Reveal

Well, have you been in absolute suspense? Could you even sleep last night?!

Here's the answer to yesterday's post:

I like you. I think that you are so special.

DING DING DING -- We have a winner! Jennifer's was the first correct guess. Wouldn't it have been neat if I actually had a prize? The title of "winner" will have to suffice, Jenn!

Back to the note ..... Isn't that just the sweetest? I was thinking, it's a given that a family would love each other -- but it's nice to be liked as well. She totally made my day!

I'll admit that back in 2001 when we found out we were expecting AGAIN ..... I wasn't praising God for that surprise. He downright VETOED our plans! I was barely keeping my head above water juggling 3 little children we already had (all aged 4 and under)! In fact, I used to kid that the name Natalie meant "you've GOT to be kidding me" in Greek.
But God's plan is perfect -- and I simply can't imagine my life without that little ray of sunshine named Natalie! She adds such joy to our home and I'm blessed more than I ever deserved. Thank you, Lord.

"Her children arise and call her blessed." Proverbs 31:28

That is the most precious post. I love hearing moms talk about their kids so endearingly.

I read it too late to win the prize...I have practice, you see, in deciphering little girls handwritten notes. Love the picture of Natalie's golden letter. What a treasure. Ruth Anne supplies me with as much reading material as I desire and then some...one of these days I'll be wondering where the adulation and hugs have gone.
