Did you know…

March 19th, 2010

…that Verity is due on my mom’s birthday?

And that I was due, and born, on her mom’s birthday?

Am I completely spoiled for thinking it would be neat if Verity were to be born on July first?

(That is also the birthday of my good friend and favorite midwife, who has taken care of me for almost 17 years now.)

I’ve been thinking about a part of my mom’s life I wish I could ask her about.  (She went to be with the Lord in 1994 after a battle with liver cancer.)  For a few years between when I finished high school and when I got married, she provided occasional respite care for young adults with disabilities.  I was so wrapped up in my own life that I didn’t pay much attention.

I also wish I knew what Mom would think if she and Verity were to share the same middle name?

Share it!

  1. God is so amazing, how He whispers in the smallest details: “I think about you… I care…. I love you…. You are mine…. Every hair upon your head is counted…. I keep your tears in a bottle….. You matter to me….. I don’t forget even the tiniest detail…. You were meant to be….”

    Your blog is ministering to me so much more than you could ever know. May I also say, I am so touched by Verity already.
