Today is a day that had the makings of being a sad day for me. My first thought was that it is the end of Jonathan's presence here in our house, and I should be sad. Today is the day that a lady is coming to buy Jonathan's old (but brand new) furniture for her soon-to-be new grandson. It makes me a bit teary that this furniture set that I searched long and hard for, for my sweet boy, never got to be used by him. Justin and I lovingly put every piece together, placed it just right in his room, and ever stood over the crib, just imagining what he would look like in it. But...God had a different plan for our boy. And this furniture sat unused for two years, just a reminder of what we had lost.
But it's time...with our new sons coming, I'm happy to pass this on to another family, and I will pray that they will get to enjoy standing at the crib, and looking down at their son fast asleep in it.
And...as I was thinking about all this--putting into perspective how I should really feel about letting it all go, I checked the delivery tracking of the two new cribs we purchased, and it said they were on the truck for delivery! And right this very second as I type this...UPS just drove up with our new cribs!!! I know we are decorating kind of early, but with the chance of bedrest for me towards the end, I want to have everything ready and actually get to be a part of the decorating!
So...today isn't an end after all...it is a new beginning!!! God is so good!!!
(And I can hardly wait for Justin to get home and put the cribs together!!! More pictures will come soon!)
