We were certain that we were in control with all that we had going on in our lives. As a family, we had just moved to Nashville to start a new life. The Committee was working hard. I was raising our three boys contemplating when I might go back to work. Then our lives were changed when we went to a wedding in Chicago. We went away as two carefree parents ready to enjoy a child-free weekend in the Windy City, and without knowing it, we came back with a whole new future that would include a new baby boy the following winter!
Living on this side of it all, I am able to see how wonderful things are for us now. The Tiniest Hair is full of such joy! He brings a smile to my face every day. His small tricks are monumental to me. I didn't really take the time to smell the roses with my other three boys like I do with my Tiny Hair.
To give it all up and let my life go in a direction that I hadn't planned, has been hard yet amazing. The Committee and I both surrendered to God's plan and prayed each day that whatever is His will shall be His way. I don't feel as though I always agree with His way, but so far this plan is so much better than one that I could have come up with on my own. I have many thanks for my many blessings!
