So much more

Yesterday was such a fun day. Josh’s grandparents and sister came over to our house to meet baby L and E.

Lily has had the chance to meet a lot of family. She doesn’t know it yet, but she is VERY loved and has so many people around her that prayed earnestly for her to come. It’s amazing what a baby can do even before they’re born. I know Lily is special and has a divine role here on Earth(I believe we all do). Before I was even pregnant with her she brought our whole family together.

We wanted to add to our family and it wasn’t happening in the time frame we had thought. All of our family was so supportive and prayed with us, mourned with us, and rejoiced with us when I finally got that positive pregnancy test. She is just a little thing, but children are so much more.

They teach me every day;

patience, kindness, selflessness, service, how to function on very little sleep, how to play make believe, and most importantly how to love unconditionally.

Now that she’s here, she’s bringing family together again. So many loved ones have come to meet her and see her light. I can’t explain how full my heart is. My family is everything to me. Josh and I are so grateful for what we’ve been given and I’m so glad we all get to be together forever.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
