Baby g and I have been incredibly blessed lately by an outpouring of love. It started a couple weeks ago with a get well gift I got in the mail from my friends at Foursquare and it hasn't let up. Then, the girls at my work threw me a surprise baby shower. And surprise it was! (If you know me well, you know I HATE surprises). I didn't even know it was coming. When I walked in, I apparently turned bright red and stood against the wall for like five minutes before I could walk all the way into the room. Surprises really throw me off! Then came some baby presents in the mail from some wonderful ladies that helped shape my childhood...Miss Ginny and Miss Ev, if you read this, thank you SO MUCH! I can't express how blessed I felt getting that stuff from you. Then, we got a present from our good friends in Edinburgh. Next came the goodbye dinner from my work...I still can't believe I am almost done. Then, to top it all off, when I was leaving work yesterday, two really sweet customers stopped me to give me a gift. They gave me a gift certificate for a facial and a bib for a baby.

Honestly, I am one of those people that never feels like 1. I deserve anything and 2. that people will actually want to give me anything. I am learning to accept things, without feeling super embarrassed and also feeling so appreciative that people would want to bless me and baby g so much.

I am also getting excited to move up to my new home next week so I can actually set up all my fun baby stuff, play with it and get ready for baby g's arrival!


  1. So wish I was there to help set everything up for you like you were there for me! It's not fair that it would cost me WAY too much to come and see my friend. Miss You! Post pics of the baby's room when you have it ready, I can't wait to see it!

  2. I sure love you Jessica! I wish you were right down the street so I could hear the wonderdul stories and see your goodies. Someday! Have a great day! Dad

  3. My young friend, you are so welcome. You can't know how blessed I was to find that you had a blog and I could once again see how you were doing! I can't wait to see pictures of baby g. It gives me an overwhelming feeling to see those "kids" I have known grow into wonderful adults, wives, mothers/fathers and having the adventures of a life time. Kids are the most wonderful adventures! Miss Ev
