April 7th.

I've heard a lot of things that mom's appreciate while their kids are growing up - things that they are thankful for that they don't want to take for granted. Some as little as a certain type of pacifier or a special "miracle blanket." Some may say its that show that gives them the thirty minutes of peace and quiet. Others will breath the words, "I'm so thankful she wasn't hurt more," or "I'm so glad there's a treatment for that."

And one day, I pray I'll get to that point where I have those things to be thankful for.

But I'm thankful I'm here in this place, on the original due date of our second baby, with just one small thing to be thankful for.

A heartbeat...of our third baby.

And I will never take it for granted.

Katie,
I can't tell you how thankful I am for you. I have been praying for you every single night as I rock Connor to sleep. As I type the words, it's all I can do to keep the tears from rolling down my cheeks. Know that I will continue to pray every night for a safe and healthy and beautiful baby for you. Hugs...

Katie,
I am sooo happy you've posted on your blog! I've been patiently waiting for a glimpse into your heart. Just like, Leah, I'll be praying for you and you're little baby everyday, but I think I'll take the 'morning prayer shift!' Love you..
