Life does go on, day by day

Well, we are starting a new journey. We are delighted and nervous about this trip, but know that God has a plan. We are now starting week 9 of a new pregnancy. I have to admit that I will be happy with any healthy baby, but I am really hopeful that we are blessed with a little girl. We ask for pleanty of prayers to protect this pregnacy and for the blessing of a healthy, no eventful pregancy. We will of course by having lots of extra monitoring, more frequent doctor visits, more blood test, more sonograms. I can't help but wonder what I could have done last time, if anything that would have made a difference with Molly. I wish that it was different. NO chances will be taken this time, but it does boil down to God being in control. Every child is such a miracle.

We are looking forward to a new and hopefully better year. I have to say that the holidays have been hard. My mantle is missing a stocking and my heart still has a hole. I think that we have all done remarkably well considering how bad 2010 was, but there are some days that are still so hard. A few days before Christmas, one of our friends brought over an ornament that she had fininshed. It was an angel that was made from the Molly's footprint (taken the day before she passed away) It was fitting. I do have to believe that she is watching us from above.
