"A Gracie Moment"
I've been strong for a few days, even to the point of almost at times this whole thing not feeling real. Maybe that is my way to cope with the lovely word "waiting", but once again tonight here I am sitting here at the kitchen counter, and suddenly it hits me and Im in tears. My wonderful son Baily walked around the corner and said "oh no whats wrong", and Terry said, it's ok, we're just having a "Gracie moment". Bailey said "I have them all the time too mom". Don't get me wrong ...they are not bad tears..they are good tears...tears that say "I want my little sweetie home with us". I want to hold her and rock her to sleep, I want to tell her how much we love her and kiss those cute little cheeks. Ohhh ...once she is here, I won't be able to take my eyes off her, I don't think any of us will. I have dreamed of adopting for so many years that it is amazing to me that now..here she is our little Gracie....Our gift from God! My eyes are so open to the Love that He has for us, and how he put that desire to adopt in my heart many years ago. This is all part of His grand plan! He moves us through good and bad times, He grows us in the areas we need to grow in, and He blesses us all in His Time!
FYI: the photo is me with blonde hair....This is me praising my Lord!!
