"Your mom is beautiful." & I handed it back. She looked at it & started to read it, "Your mom?...NO IT DOESN'T"
I had forgotten...
Annie can read now!
I was busted!
THANK YOU!!! For all your sweet words yesterday!!! They meant SOOOO much to me! It was an emotionally exhausting day.
If I confused you yesterday about the baby here is the LONG story...but please don't feel like you need to read it, like I said it is kinda long...
Well...the joke was certainly on me...
Yesterday I was supposed to be induced. I woke up early to go, kids where they needed to be, make-up on, fully excited & ready to head to the hospital at 6:00am. Doctor had said, "Looks wide open! There should be no problems getting in." Just needed to call the hospital to make sure tons of babies hadn't gone into labor during the night. But...they had!
Every 3 hours the hospital & I would connect, "Probably later...we are really going to try to get you in."
It wasn't to be. But in that disappointment I saw God's power....what you didn't know...is that I was dealing with an abscessed tooth...TERRIBLY painful!!! My dentist had up & moved (surprise!) no new dentists wanted to deal with me without charts, I hadn't slept a for 2 nights straight because of the pain BUT I still wanted to deliver & HOPING the hospital would be able to take care of the pain & the baby. But even after I got medicated the tooth pain was unbearable for a good 24 hours...THE SAME 24 hours I would have been holding my new babe. The same 24 hours I would have been greeting visitors & making phone calls..and that tooth pain would have taken so much joy out of the delivery.
So today I have my babe in my tummy & the tooth pain is going away with the antibiotic until after delivery when the dentist says it will be MUCH better to deal with my tooth. God had a plan. My doctor said, "I am so sorry!!! This almost NEVER happens." God filled up those hospital beds so I would not have to have a HORRIBLE toothache in labor. Makes me feel humbled & brings me to tears at the love God has for me. Thanks God!!! He showed me that His plans are MUCH wiser than my own.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".
