Another lesson learned- since it's hard for me to talk right now, I have found myself doing a whole lot more listening, praying, and pondering. This frustrating blessing has allowed me to appreciate things that I probably would have missed had God not allowed my voice to take a vacation (maybe that's why God tells us to be quick to listen and slow to speak :-). Some of the things that I was quietly blessed by is watching and admiring the deep, raw, and unhibited love (that boarders on obsession) that Abigail and Andrew have for Grace. It's like Christmas morning everyday in our house because they can't wait until Grace wakes up and when she does they are consumed with loving on her and tending to her every need.
"Merry Christmas Bubba and Sissy, I'm awake now and ready for some lovin'!"
Love you and good night, sweet Village!
