Two days ago I received some very surprising news. Despite all of my planning and prevention methods, my husband and I are expecting!! Oh…My….Goodness (Jaw still dropping). The news came in the form of an email as that is how my doctor reveals all blood-work results. To say that I was shocked is an understatement. There were tears of all kinds of emotions but mostly of astonishment. We’ve talked about it in the past, having a third child, but my hubby and I have always had slightly opposing views about it. He comes from a big family so the thought of more children is always welcomed by him. And I, being one of two children always figured “hey, I have two eyes, two ears, two hands, why not just two children. With a 7 and a 10 year old, we have all finally gotten into our rhythm and routines. We know pretty much what to expect from each child. Everyone has his own place in the family and all seems well with the world. I guess God has other plans.
I know that we are only in the month of April but this year so far has been a life lesson for me that I have now for the first time truly learned: No matter how much planning we do in life, we are not and can not be in control of everything!! Sometimes things happen because they are just meant to happen. Some call it fate, others call it destiny. I like to call them miracles and blessings.
I am still in shock and it will take a minute for me to truly process this news. But I can now say from the bottom of my heart that I am excited! Sometimes we just have to let go and let God. He has never left us thus far and I know He definitely won’t leave us now that He has blessed us with another bundle of joy.
