I was sitting in class waiting for the professor to get there. It had been a crazy week and I really just wanted to go home. So I get this text from Shammah and it reads “I have to tell you something, but you can’t tell anyone!” My heart is racing, I’m freaking out a little–note to people. That’s probably not the best way to start a conversation, especially with a mom. It is a given that the worst comes to mind first. Just saying. Anywhoo. She goes on to say that “SHE IS PREGNANT” yup, I ugly cried in class & I didn’t care. You see the story behind this news is that they had been trying for sometime & while everyone and their mom was getting preganant around them, it just wasn’t happening. I learned my first lesson out of many from them. They kept faith, they kept God the center and continued to be humble in all circumstances. What a testimony it was to Clinton and I.
Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4
God always has perfect timing, his plan far exceeds any plan we may have.
So with permission, I couldn’t help, but tell Clinton. We then planned a baby announcement session and bada boom bada bang..it was revealed.
Fast forward a few weeks, & lets just say selfish Marissa was upset. My dear friends were moving and it wasn’t next door to us. Jose had taken a job in Colorado, yup out of Texas to be exact 17 hours 5 mins & boom in a blink of an eye they were gone. Okay not really, but really. So I got over myself and Clinton and I planned our vacation to Colorado instead of Michigan during spring break. It was such an amazing reunion 3 months is just way too long. I had the privilege once again to capture their love for one another, their love for their beautiful daughter and their growing baby girl in the womb. It was amazing.
& I will just say..Shammah may or may not have been creeped out because I couldn’t help, but continuously tell her how gorgeous she was. She is stunning and that glow, just saying I didn’t have that glow with my own. Made me want to be pregnant, just like a half of a half a second. There is such a thing. I’m sure of it.
