I have been waiting for many years to receive the news that one of my longest friendship friends was expecting- and I know she has been too. Mama and I have known each other since we were about 6 years old – we were best friends throughout grade school and into high school, sadly lost touch for a few years but thankfully reconnected in our early 20’s. I know the road to Ruby has been long, with crazy, wild, unexpected turns. I am a firm believer that at some points in our lives we cannot understand why our path is headed in the way it is and then life throws us a sharp right turn and we’re heading in a different direction. The past often seems to start to make sense, but only after that sharp turn in the road….and I think this is abundantly true in this case.
To learn of my dear friends pregnancy was incredibly exciting (and incredibly hard to keep a secret until she announced it!) and then when we found out it was a girl….well that was the icing on the cake. (not that a boy would have been less exciting- its just to have a mother-daughter relationship….*sigh*….its a beautiful thing)
I’m super excited for this next year as I will be seeing Miss Ruby for her newborn and every 3 months for the first year! I’m so blessed to be part of this amazing blessing that has been awarded to a very deserving woman.
*and Miss Ruby decided to make an early appearance so she has already made her appearance into our world at the time I post this!~ Can’t wait for her newborn session this weekend! Just WAIT until you see how adorable she is!!!!!*
