The Baby Blanket

I am so blessed.  Years ago, when my 96-year-old grandmother was more capable, she crocheted for me a baby blanket in the hopes that one day I would have a child.  For almost a decade, my mother stored that blanket, keeping it safe and clean in a box in the linen closet. 

As the years passed and I met no one whom I felt called to marry, I began to worry.  Would God ever give me the chance to be a wife and mother?  Would the little baby blanket ever get used?

Praise God, He answered my prayers.  The vocation calling to be a wife and mother, which I felt deep within my heart, was not misleading me.  I just needed to be patient and wait for Michael and Liam to enter my life.

That "someone special" is our little Liam!
