Yesterday started very early for a lot of us. As I was about to head into the Newport Hospital my phone goes off and tells me my sister got bumped. So we made a bunch of changes to my plan for the day and just prayed more. Praying for whoever it was that was in the emergency c-section, and for peace for my sister while she waited. Then started to wonder if it mattered that I wanted so badly to go take pictures. I mean come on it’s just pictures, and it’s probably not that big of a deal, and you will just be sitting in the room for about two hours waiting, I told myself. However, my heart cried that it mattered to me and I was going to be there no matter what. So I shuffled my four kiddos around and got them settled (with my awesome babysitter! 😉 ) Drove up to the hospital and much to my surprise and GREAT OVERWHELMING JOY, they invited me in to the O.R. to welcome my niece! I can’t really put into words all the things that ran through my mind or continue to go through my mind as I am still in shock and awe over getting to be part of this incredible moment in time. I feel like I got to bond with my sister like never before. I feel like Only my loving Heavenly Father could have worked the details to grant me the deep desire of my heart to be there. I feel like it’s just the beginning of amazing testimonies ahead. I feel like it does matter, the photos from this take my breath away and move me to tears, every time I look through them. I am overwhelmed by LOVE. Love from family. Love from our heavenly Father who gives good gifts and desires to do IMPOSSIBLE things made POSSIBLE for us! I am not a writer, or very good with words, but the Lord is showing me that pictures really can be worth a thousand words, and that they are the story…of Laughter, Love, and Life. Enjoy the story
Also I would like to add….I have a new RESPECT and PROUD of my sister (all women) who have to have C-sections…watching this was mind blowing to just what you go through. <3
