Reason #8

We have now but ONE, single, solitary day left.. just one small span of 24 hours before we fall head over heels for two little bundles of joy. Ahh, I am without many more words to say as I think of meeting them.

Although I'm sure I have lots more, here is my 8th and last reason as to why I love being pregnant:

I love that it's just me and these babies for 9 months. I get them all to myself, to care for and protect, before they enter the world. After Molly was born and we realized something was wrong, I wanted desperately to snuggle her back into my womb where she was safe and where I sustained her life. I kept her alive and once she was born, there was nothing that I could do to fully protect her like I had for 9 months before. While I knew it was impossible to do, I remember wanting her back in my tummy for the entire week of her life.

It's an incredible opportunity and blessing to grow and nurture a precious life. I am incredibly grateful for another chance to have life inside my body. What a delight and joy!! I have truly loved and delighted in carrying these babies!!

This beautiful Easter morning is so wonderful to wake up to. We have the promise and reminder of Jesus rising from the dead after giving his life for ours on the cross. With his resurrection we have new life and the promise of eternity with him in heaven.

And just like the delicate tulips that are springing up in our yard, we have the promise of new life just around the corner. We wait with delight and anticipation as tomorrow draws closer when we will welcome with open arms these girls we have prayed and prayed for.

Ahhh, I cannot wait!

Praying all goes well tomorrow - I so remember the entire guantlet of emotions as I considered bringing two babies into the world. So may you feel the clear peace of our Father tomorrow besides you and the joy of kissing your two baby girls. blessings!
