Fast-forward three years later. We were purchasing a new car and were debating between a seven or eight seater and Steve jokingly said "we'll get the eight seater hun....just incase we have any accidents." I held his hand, looked him square in the eyes and reassured him the doctors said there would be no more babies....we bought the eight seater! Shortly after we went on a family holiday down to the Gold Coast and on the return drive Steve and I were talking and made plans (my decision to do something for myself) for me to get a personal trainer and try and get myself back to my usual size. Two weeks after we returned home I noticed I was feeling a little bloated in my lower abdomen, so, feeling rather foolish I went to the doctor......I was pregnant!!!
No don't get me wrong....I was excited.....but man it took a lot to undo my brain from thinking we couldn't have anymore, and accepting it....to then tell myself it was possible all along! I have learnt that things happen not in our time but in the Lords time. I know there are no mistakes.....I know our beautiful girl was sent to us to bless and enrich our family.....and she fulfils this every single day.
So I say thank my Heavenly Father for the past 9 years of an ongoing blessing....and I thank my Rebecca Mary (aka BooBoo) for being such an important part of our lives.
Hug your children.....tell them you love them, over and over again...they can never hear it enough!!!!
Peace and love xxx
