I couldn't help but think that to myself, as I went for a super fabulous run in the beautiful sunshine. Wearing shorts and a t-shirt, no less. Today was close to 70! It was beautiful and warm and fantastic. You can bet that run was a perfect Joyful Moment for me.
But it was made all the better by the splendid morning I'd had.
First, HH did all he could to make my morning as pleasant and smooth as possible. Even inconveniencing himself quite a bit.
Thanks, HH. I love you.
But the real Joyful Moment of the day goes to the little one growing in my belly.
This morning was my official ultrasound. Where we saw this:
Don't get me wrong. I would have been happy with a boy. We were thrilled to learn that, as far as tests and pictures can tell she is healthy and perfect in every way. But we were already thrilled to be having a baby, no matter the gender or the conditions.
But I really really REALLY wanted a girl. For so many reasons. I just wanted a girl. And Sweet P was really longing for a sister.
It was so fun sharing the news with her after school today. Little M wanted to be the one and she just went wild after he told her. So cute.
So many Joyful Moments.
But this was my favorite of all the photos. It's one of those "4-D" images. I love how cute and precious that little hand looks.
Oh, Baby Girl* I can't wait to hold you!
Wishing you all Joyful Moments on days that feel just like a perfect gift from God!
*Not her permanent name here. I'm still deliberating.
