My friends threw Ben [and me] a baby shower yesterday. The gifts, beautiful flowers used for decoration, words of encouragement and reminder that I have gracious support system all blessed me greatly. I didn't really know I was [emotionally] at a place of needing something like that. But I was. And I got.
And, seriously, aren't those hydrangeas pretty?
Emily made this beautiful, beautiful quilt. I really appreciate the fact she took the time to make it for Ben and even incorporated colors from his room. Definitely a special gift.
One friend even thought to give Cate a little present so when I came in the house with arms full of presents for this baby brother we keep talking about she wouldn't feel left out. Good thinking, Molly.
And, thanks, friends for yesterday and for being who you for our family.
