The Windows of Heaven

Heavenly Father has promised his children blessings...so many that at times we may feel like the windows of heaven have opened and blessing are just pouring down. I feel that we have truly been the recipients of this love. He has blessed us through each one of you, our family and friends. When I found out I was pregnant Eric and I lived in a one bedroom mother in law apartment and wondered how we would make room for a baby. We were determined and satisfied at the idea of making it work. I never imagined being able to decorate a nursery. In July our landlord informed us that he wanted to sale the house and asked us to move out by the end of August. It was quite the adventure, finding a new place to call home, but we did and we love it. Our new place has two rooms so guess what that meant for me...the excitement of being able to prepare a special place for our little girl. It has been a dream come true. And one that would have never come true without all of you. We were given nursery furniture that has been passed down through 4 of Eric's little cousins and now on to us. We were able to find super great deals at garage sales, we have been flooded with gifts, clothes, blankets, special homemade quilts from loving grandmothers, a book collection from family in North Carolina and much much more. I can't thank you all enough. We have been truly blessed.

The nursery is beautiful and will be even more beautiful when it has our little granddaughter in it. She has more clothes than I do. She must be taking after her Aunt Heather.

Hey Ashlea! The nursery is adorable! Hope your pregnancy is going good...I'm due just a few days after you! I wanted to let you know we are living in Silverdale, WA now so maybe we can get together sometime...I know we are a little bit of a drive from each other!

You ARE truly blessed... but at the same time, you truly bless others. You attract goodness to you and that is one of the things I love most about you. My darling, 'the angels have charge of you' and your Father is so pleased with you.

I love you, my girl,
