Blessed

Last night I was overwhelmingly blessed by friends and family who threw me a baby shower. We filled up an entire clubhouse with friends, food, cake and conversation...and LOTS of gifts! I was very touched by how many people came to show their support, and also by how many of them brought donations for the orphanage. I'd say our suitcases will definitely be full now!

Brian and I were talking last night about how we moved here almost exactly four years ago, and we knew no one. We left many friends at home, and we prayed that God would bless us with new friends. As I looked around the room last night, I saw the abundance of God's blessings.
