|Back in the old days when I was pregnant.|
That is miraculous to me. Josh and I always felt strongly when it was time for us to bring another soul into our family, just like we felt strongly when our family was complete. We didn't know what life had in store for us, but God did. He helped our family get to the point where we didn't have to worry about interactions with budding lives when I started Crohn's treatments.
I know we all have struggles and things in life don't always work out the way we would like, but it is so comforting to see these miraculous moments show up every now and then that remind us that God loves us and that he can see the big picture even when we can't.
If Josh and I had been left to our own devices we probably would not have had our children quite so close together (20-24 months distance between them...not the closest ever, but still pretty close). We probably would not have had six children either. Thankfully, God let us in on a bit of His plan for us and I LOVE the outcome. I feel grateful that we successfully got our children here and had time to feel that our family was done so that Crohn's disease wouldn't cause one more hiccup in our lives.
I head back to the doctor again in another month so I'll have some time for this new stuff to kick in. Hopefully things in my GI track will be even better by then. That's my plan, we'll see how it goes.
