Today’s the big day!

June 22, 2011 | 44 comments

By the time you read this, I’ll be at the hospital! A few things:

  • I would like to ask for your prayers. With my last birth I learned just how powerful prayer really is, so please do pray for me again! I need it!
  • We’re on for Quick Takes on Friday; Hallie Lord will be hosting.
  • I might be updating some on Twitter, it just depends on how things go and how I feel.

Thanks and God bless!

    I hope everything is/went well with the birth of your next child! I was looking at my calendar a couple of hours ago and seeing the date “June 22nd” I thought to myself, “something big is happening today. What is it? What was that thing I was supposed to remember?” Ha! It was the birth of your child. Said a prayer for you just a minute ago. Will keep praying now that I have my memory back.
