No, but seriously, I am so blessed!
It's kind of a scary thing birthing a child and living so far away from family. It's actually quite scary. I have been so lucky to have great friends who have helped me through, and today I feel particularly grateful for
*Betsy, who was able to take kids last minute while I went to the doctor (still at a three...). It was oober early in the morning and she has lots of her own kids, but she was totally willing to help. Then she told me to plan on her bringing dinner on Wednesday. Awesome! Plus she provided some much needed "listen to Kristi vent"ness. Thanks Betsy!
* When I got home from the doctors there was the biggest pile of diapers I have ever seen sitting on my front porch! There was a card and several people from my ward (pre-ward split!) had all gone in and gotten me a mountain of diapers. What a blessing. Seriously. I felt so loved and cared for and it honestly just made my day! Thank you Robin, Chelon, Jeannie, Kim, Jody, Jamee, Stacy, Jamie, Becca and Tammy. That was the best surprise ever! Oh and they also brought a headband with cute flowers to put on it and a bracelet. Thank you!
* Ralphie and Meleah showed up just as I was having my emotional breakdown of gratitude for Betsy and diapers and spent time cleaning my floors, and stove, and helping fold laundry (you know...all the things I've been begging Blaine to help me with ; ) ). I thought that was the nicest thing ever. Ever. Thank you!
* I e-mailed the incredible Shauna Jones (don't know why I always feel like I must add her last name!) a day or two ago asking if she could make some bows for the baby, since my bow making days are way over. I was thinking like a little tiny bow to glue on the babies head. Anyway, she sent me pictures of the bows she is sending and they are like....amazing. Seriously. I am so grateful to have crafty friends!
* A huge huge thanks to Lauree, Ralphie, Gretchen, and Melanie for volunteering to help with my kids while I am in the hospital. These are all amazing women, who have kids of there own to take care of, but are happily taking mine in for a couple of days. THANK YOU THANK YOU. It is so nice to have so many friends who I trust more than myself to watch my kids.
So, TAMN, you've got nothing on me, because I am Seriously, so blessed!
