A Sweet Reminder!

Don't you just love how God always finds a neat way to make every day special and make you smile? Especially when you most needed? A few days ago, I was feeling a little overwhelmed and somewhat tired. Ya know...sometimes you have a million things running through your head and you know that somehow it all has to get done whether you have the energy or not. Well, while I sat across the room I noticed my that my husband had sent me a text message. I totally love hearing from him through the day especially when he works 12 hrs a day. I picked up the phone and this is what I see....

with the message "you sent me this pic the day before Karina was born, 24 hours before she was born crazy. That night we went to the hospital" about making my day!!!! I immediately glanced at the picture and transported myself to that very moment. The moment I laid in bed with pain that in reality were early contractions hahaha! My reason for sending my hubby this pic via text was to make him smile because I knew how much he loved to see and kiss my belly. Little did I know that our precious baby girl would be in my arms almost 24 hrs later. I sent him this pic at 11:33am and she was born the next day at 12:06pm. Better yet..little did I know that a couple of months later God would be putting in my husband's heart to send this very same pic to me to remind me that I have a gazillion reasons to smile:D My overwhelmed mind immediately forgot about my mental "to-do" list and simply enjoyed the sweet kiss from the Lord. Reminds me of the song, "Simple bareneI love the way God works don't you?!?!?

It's incredible to think that in the picture she was getting ready for the big journey she would take to meet us and forever be part of our lives. What seemed to me like a typical day was a day the Lord had chosen to bless us with our miracle. I look at the picture over and over again and try to imagine what Karina's world must have been like in there, what ran through her mind at that point in time and what it felt like to know that she would be finally meeting her mommy and daddy! Life is precious and such a beautiful miracle. Thank YOU LORD for giving us life!

And thank YOU my Lord for this very special we will never ever forget..

Now the Lord makes us smile through our baby girl every day<3

This is my FAVORITE post EVER!!!!! What a blessing it is to know that you are quick to recognize God in those details, Sis. And, I love that Manny was obedient to send that text when it needed to be sent. You have blessed me many times with texts yourself. I love and miss you more than ever now!!!
