I'll Take One Dozen, Please

Yep, today marks:
  • 1 year
  • 12 months
  • 365 days

We've been waiting for some time. If asked if I was okay with a longer wait a couple months ago, I would have flipped out, screamed, pulled out my hair (quite a task - have you seen how much I have?), then likely taken a sedative or two.

After the scare and journey this has turned into, however, I have to say I'll wait patiently...ish. Grasping the reality of the alternative waiting seems easy enough - or do-able at least.

Waiting will result in wonderous results of the human kind.

Waiting builds character.

Waiting isn't an event, it's an experience well worthwhile.

And while the wait may be another dozen months, I'll take it. I'll continue living and not missing out; Knowing that anything worth waiting for this long, will be incredible.

She will be incredible.

Just got caught up on all that's happened in the last week or so. I'm praising God this morning for carrying you through and for all that's been done!
