Excited, Giddy, Surprised...

Do you ever have a moment when you learn something new and exciting, and you are so blown away that it almost takes your breath?  That happened to me today.  I was talking to a good friend, one that I've been through quite a bit with.  One of those friends that you don't have to talk to each and every day to know that you are still "friends".  A friend that you know is thinking about you, or praying for you, and each time you talk with them you leave knowing that you have a true friendship with them.  This friend is exactly that to me.  She is a blessing in so many ways. She knows who she is, and for now, I'll keep her a secret! :)

So today while talking on the phone I discovered some exciting news.  She is expecting!!!!! Trust me when I tell you I did not see this coming, at all.  My life has been so busy and crazy lately that I've been out of touch with most of my girlfriends and that is obvious by this phone call.  I had just put Tucker down for a nap when the call came in.  I answered and as we normally do we chatted about everything under the sun.  Sick babies, car seats, larger vehicles and the whole time I didn't see the little ques that I should have.  Then I don't remember exactly what was said, but at that moment it clicked with me and I said, "are you pregnant?!" Her response, a little giggle then a yes.  I screamed, "SHUT UP, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?"  I think I ended up saying it probably 5-6 times.  Bless her heart, I hope I didn't blow her eardrum.  Luckily I didn't wake Tucker either.  I truly was surprised, excited, and giddy all at the same time.  

We continued to talk, and I still in awe tried to finish preparing dinner.  She continued to tell me about her upcoming doctors appointment, and the more she talked the more excited I became.  I was covered in chill bumps.  Seriously, I had chill bumps on my arms, neck, even my ears.  I don't think that even happened when I found out I was expecting my own children! :)

My thoughts and prayers are with my dear friend.  It is my prayer that God will watch over her, and the sweet baby she is carrying.  May the months that are ahead be ones she'll enjoy and never forget.  I also pray that any fears or concerns she has, may she lay them at God's feet.  I can not wait to meet your little one!!  Congratulations, and God bless!!!

I LOVE YOU Friend!

How blessed you are to have such a friend! (She is blessed, also, to have such a great friend in you!)

Sharing a pregnancy with a friend is so much fun, especially when you love babies so much!
