Expecting the Unexpected

My friend, Amy T, never ceases to surprise me. Friday night, at about 8:30pm, she calls me up and tells me to get dressed because she's sending Angie over to get me and we were going to come visit her. She lives about an hour from us, but that didn't make any difference.

I've come to expect the unexpected with Amy T. It's just part of who she is and I wouldn't know what to do without her randomness.
Even though Ang and I were only at Amy's a couple of hours, we had a great time. I love random, spontaneous, unexpectedness like this!

In other unrelated news, Chris and I found out today that our latest treatment cycle failed. Our hearts are broken. This is another area in which I've come to expect the unexpected, that's for sure. Things just never seem to go as they are supposed to. There is always some unexpected kink that throws it all off.

Today was very, very hard, but tomorrow is already looking better. I know who holds my future in His hands, and that truly makes this bearable. I guess we are just going to pick up and try again, which is exhausting to even think about at this point, but we are not ready to give up.

Later this week, I plan to attend my sister's baby shower, so I have to be a big girl about this. I want to be able to celebrate my new niece's expected arrival in pure joy, without today overshadowing my heart.

Someday it will be my turn, just not today.

Those pictures make my heart tingle with happiness!

You are in my daily prayers and will continue to be.

What I've learned of you in our short time of friendship is that you're solid in your trust in the Lord. My heart hurts for you, but my faith joins with yours and all the while my prayers add emphasis to my faith. Your experience is not hidden from Him and His compassion is toward you. KJG
