Telling Jeremiah.


I had always envisioned finding out I was pregnant and doing something creative to tell Jeremiah. When I found out I was pregnant with Moses, however, Jeremiah was standing right next to me as we waited for the result. That was wonderful and I wouldn't trade the memory for anything. This time around I was so shocked I just didn't know what to do. I reached for my phone to call him. This is the the conversation went:
J: Hey sweetie!
S: Hi. Are you at work yet?
J: Yep, just got here.
Long pause.
S: Are you coming home for lunch?
J: I'm going to do my best.
Long pause.
J: Is everything okay?
S: Yes. I will talk to you this afternoon, then.
J: Suuu-saaan
Long pause.
S: Well, um, I'm pregnant.
J: I'll be right there.
Creative, right?
About 10 minutes later he came home picked me up and swung me around in circles. He was thrilled. He showed none of the doubt or worry I was feeling. It was exactly what I needed. We sat down and prayed together and blessed this sweet little life. What a wonderful man I married! Just what I need, when I need it.

What a sweet story! Isn't it great how God gives us just what we need, when we need it? You are going to be a great mom to Moses and this new little baby (you already are!). I will be praying for you, and please let me know if I can help you with anything (especially with breastfeeding- probably the only thing I feel successful at, haha). Can't wait to see you in Sept!
