Little Feet

On friday night Tyler and I went to visit with my cousin Shira and her husband Devin. We had a lot of fun talking until the wee hours of the morning. But the best part was when I got to feel her baby boy kicking in her cute little pregnant belly. I've known she was going to have a baby for a few months now, but it has finally sunk in. I have grown up with Shira and we have both watched each other experience things throughout our lives and we have been there for each other through it all. I love and appreciate her and the closeness that we share. It is really a special experience for me to see her prepare to be a mother. It makes me realize that I want to be in her position someday in the near future. Those little feet kicking reminded me... If God blesses me with the opportunity to be able to bare children, I will be able to feel some little feet kick my belly someday. What an amazing thing! When life brings about such majesty and splendor, how can we not see what an intricate and splendid plan this is that we are all a part of? I am so very grateful for the many blessings in my life, for the wonderful women in my life who have shown me the way, and for the little feet.
