Guess what...


Walker # 4 is on his/her way! I've been sitting here at the computer for several minutes now, trying to think of what to blog about since it's been like a bazillion months since my last post. And then it came to me, I could just share some good news. Crazy news, but good news! Scary news, but good news!
It's kinda funny to see how God works in my life. Two days before finding out this good news, I was pleading with Jayce(my youngest and newly married sis) and her husband, Matt, to please not be in a hurry to have kids. Or maybe to just not even have any at all because it is sooo stinkin hard! This was all in the middle of one of those pulling-my -hair-out, Calgon Take Me Awaaaaaay kinda days. But to be honest, I've had quite a few of those lately! And then,BAAM! I discover this good news of a fourth baby! And I'm thinkin Huh? Me? Lord, do you really think this is a good idea? Deep breaths. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Ok, I don't get it, but I accept it. Ok, so maybe I'm even feeling happy and excited. And I realize, this must be a God thing, because I am experiencing peace that I know I can't produce!

Yeah! You never write on your blog but I went ahead and clicked on it and saw this! I felt the same way right before I found out I was pregnant with my fourth and when I did take the test I ended up taking 4 more because I just thought it couldn't be. And she is the sweetest, easiest baby (well, she is two now) and yours will be too. I am very happy for you all. How fun.
