I just needed to express how completely humbled I feel right now. When Keith and I found out we were pregnant (unexpectedly), I really had no idea how we would be able to make things work. I figured we would just have to get by with this baby with as little as possible. On Friday as I was driving home I realized just how blessed we have been. We have had so many people willing to help us and support us in this. We were lucky to have showers where people were so giving and thoughtful. I honestly didn't expect many people to come, or even to bring anything (I just like sharing with friends and family). As I was driving home, it was hard to not cry by how generous and thoughtful so many people have been. Even people that we may not know very well or haven't seen in a long time. I am just so grateful! Keith and I have a beautiful room for our baby to come home to and so many wonderful gifts to share with her. I often go in her room (it helps me to have to strength somedays to keep going) and I see all the things people have given to us and helped us with and I feel blessed. There is NO way that we could have done this on our own. The Lord has provided a way for us through so many wonderful friends and family members. I don't know to how to express how grateful and touched I am. I don't know why so many people have been so kind to me (us). I don't feel I deserve it. I wish I could be as giving selfless as all those who have helped us. I feel humbled and truly loved. I hope that I can look for ways to show the kindness we have felt with others. We are grateful beyond expression and love all who have offered help, kind words, encouragement and just words of wisdom. We love you so very much!
