I was going to tell you about my trip to London last week when I went to the Victoria and Albert museum and saw the quilts exhibition of quilts from the year 1500 onwards. I was also going to tell you about my visit to the Fashion and Textile museum afterwards to see the exhibition of the textile company Sanderson who is celebrating their 150th year in business. But, so much has happened since then that it all feels like a blur and as photography wasn't allowed, it doesn't help.
If you've read my blog for a while now, you may have read the post where I shared with you about my Hubby's journey through cancer and the impact that it has had on us. There was a bit that I didn't share though. When the consultant told us that Hubby had cancer, he also told us that he wouldn't be able to have children after the chemotherapy. Initially it felt like a double blow, but as we started to live from one day to the next, I remembered and started to hold onto the promises of God. Looking on the internet, I found out that in a small percentage of cases, it is still possible to conceive, but that medical advice was to wait 2 years after chemotherapy. Well, as you may recall, going to Hawaii was our celebration of him being 2 years cancer free. Well, it was also from then on that we decided that we're not going to stress about it but if it happened, it happened.
And, it did! I'm pregnant! And, I thank God for two miracles in my life. I am filled with gratefulness, joy and a peace that I cannot put into words. It is also wonderful to see my Hubby so happy. He is already so caring and supportive. My cup flows over.
As I ponder on the little miracle, I am reminded of the scripture: "For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful I know that full well." Psalm 139: 13-14
It is still very early and I know 'they' say you're not supposed to share your news too early but, I am too happy to be able to keep this quiet any longer. So, I hope you'll share this journey with us the next 9 months as I intent to craft and sew my way through this.
