|Me with Big Brother Kaden!|
A few moments (that seemed like a lifetime) later several of us in the waiting room received a group text...no words...just one photo:
Be still my heart.
There he is. My second grandson. He's here. Seeing the photo took my breath. The tears immediately started flowing. He's beautiful. I was so immediately grateful for this gorgeous newest blessing to our family.
Ok, now, how's Kirsten? I need a word. I need someone to tell me how she is. Is she okay? Hello? Anyone? I'm freaking out here. Is the problem fixed? Situation resolved? HELLO!!??!! Is my baby girl okay?
"She's good." was the reply received when Mark sent a text to John and asked how she was.
My eyes closed. Tears still flowing. Exhale, Valerie. Deep breaths. "Thank you, Lord."
Once again, my prayers had been answered. Once again, my Father had answered my pleas. My baby girl was okay. And I had a beautiful new grandson. Another blessing to add to the many blessings I already had.
I felt so silly. I had worried, again. I was anxious, again. I had first looked into what I could do to solve the problem at hand instead of trusting and going first to the One I KNOW can solve all our problems if we would only ask. Silly, silly girl. Will you ever learn??
