3 Years Ago Today01/13/2013 - Author: Jennifer - 10 Comments
My life changed forever 3 years ago today.
Back story: In 2009, we were told we could try and get pregnant again after we lost our first baby. I can’t tell you how many failed pregnancy tests I took that year. We were going to have to look into options to help us get pregnant. Then, we decided to go to Ireland for my 30th birthday. I told myself that I wasn’t going to take another pregnancy test. I wasn’t going pursue other options yet, not until after our trip.
Leading up to this day, had been exciting. Our trip to Ireland was finally happening! But, for the past few days I had not been feeling well. Having a cold isn’t uncommon in January. Having a cold that mad me feel nauseous isn’t unheard of, but it would go away and I thought nothing of it.
The morning of January 13th, 2010, was like any other day, EXCEPT I woke up with nausea. Hmmm…..maybe? I had 1 pregnancy test left. I thought, OK–last time before Ireland in April. What I never thought possible again happened~~ we had a positive pregnancy test. I am talking a digital, no brainer, no counting faded lines~~PREGNANT! I asked questions–how, when, what?! I know, like I should know this stuff by now, but the questions came anyway!
Ireland~~ well, it didn’t happen. A volcano erupted and we canceled our trip. You know what? That is OK. Life comes with interruptions that I feel God has blessed me with. Even as I write this post, I have been interrupted and had a tickle fest with my now 2 year old son. I am ok with interruptions and plans that don’t go, well, according to my plan because I am convinced that God knew what would happen and has blessed me so much more than I could have planned for myself.
3 years ago today, 1 day after we booked the trip of a lifetime, God interrupted my life with news that I was pregnant. This was a miracle and a blessing. I am so grateful for God’s interruptions. What about you? Any interruptions that God blessed you with? I would love to hear.
