Good News

Thumbnail

I just had the most wonderful week! We were so blessed to spend time with one of my favorite people in the whole world- Leah! My sister-in-law. I have been so privileged to watch her grow from a 9 year old girl into a beautiful woman who truly desires God. She is my best friend. Leah married an amazing man three years ago. When we first met Lex, we loved him right away. We knew he cherished her. He flew to Missouri to ask Adam permission to marry his sister. We gave our blessing, but decided to have a little fun with him first. I picked Leah and Lex up at the airport and arranged to meet Adam at a seedy location. There Adam was waiting in a dark parking lot with a huge board with nails in it. Lex got out of the van to meet his future brother-in-law. Adam proceeded to tell him how special Leah was and he better look after her.
What made it even better, there was a van full of young teenage men with a video camera yelling, "fight! fight!"! The van full of thugs were disappointed when the Adam and Lex embraced. LOL!
Many of you have asked if I was pregnant because of my tears and strange cravings. WELL.........
No, I'm not but Leah is! I'm finally going to be an aunt!!!!!! I'm so excited. Maybe all my weird symptoms were a foreshadowing of her pregnancy.
So my sweet Leah, I'm doing the dance for you (privately). I love you so much.

Ok..Congrats to Leah! But there are some sort of unsaid blog rules and posting a positive preggo test on your blog only leads your readers to believe it is a indicator of the author being with child...NO FAIR MESSING WITH YOUR BLOG READERS!!!!!
