"Psstt... in case you haven't noticed, you're getting more than you deserve."
That's exactly what happened this past Sunday.
Some lovely ladies at church threw a baby shower for Jane. There were cupcakes and hand made invitations in the shape of library cards. Swoon. There were vintage alphabet cards and flowers and a table set with an antique quilt (hand-made for the hostess by her grandmother).
There were practical gifts.
There were gifts that made me laugh.
And a few that made me tear up.
It was a moment where the reality of all this became very clear. I'm going to be a mother. I have no idea what I'm doing. But I now own lots of tiny shoes for a pair of tiny feet. This is definitely happening.
I also realized that even though I don't deserve it, I'm surrounded by women that love me. Women that have answers and advice and lots of love to give.
It was a beautiful day. I'm still a little overwhelmed by it all. There are no appropriate words to express my thankfulness.
