Ruby link

My mom published her poem to her glory-grandbaby Ruby on her blog. Just wanted to share the link because it's a very precious post. I have also been thinking about her a lot...well, I always do, but a little differently I guess since being pregnant again. I still love and treasure the verse at the top of the blog. It means even more now as I realize how perfect God's timing is. I found/He showed that verse BEFORE Blueberry came along, BEFORE we'd even "decided" to "try" for another baby. And I am so thankful that He gave me that peace and joy in HIM ALONE, and not just because I was pregnant again. That peace was a lot of the reason we decided we could take another chance and know we'd be okay. Anyway, I didn't mean to ramble, but I'm just so touched by Mom's message and her honesty and encouragement. I'm so thankful for her! And for each of you.

Hey Melanie,
I found your blog through Amy Bowman's. I've kind of "stalked" the blog for a while but I wanted to say congrats on the upcoming arrival! I will be praying for you and "blueberry!"

Melanie, one reason that I am so happy about this new baby is because I was able to see that you were back... For a long time, there was that "sparkle" missing from my girl, and I'm really thankful that it's back and it came back "before" you knew about Baby Blueberry. GOD IS GOOD!!!

Love, Mama
