A Baby Shower
This evening I was very blessed with a baby shower. When we first moved here, I cried over being pregnant because I didn't even know if anyone would offer to cook me a meal when we had this baby. A baby shower was the last thing I expected to happen. These women are mostly women from a bible study I have joined on the Air Force base that meets once a week. From this study, my kids have found playmates, and I have found companionship in wonderful Christian woman who I must say are "supermoms". I have not found any friends for life or busom buddies yet but I do believe that God has some very blessed relationships in store for me through these women...relationships that I feared I would never find. Our move to Hawaii has opened us up to the military life in a way we never experienced in MA. Military wives open their arms to new comers and cling to each other in a very beautiful way. I was moved to tears when they told me they were throwing me a baby shower...I mean how many people get one for their 3rd child?! But I believe it is something that military wives do to show support and love to other military wives no matter what child it is...they are just different in a very special way that I am on my knees thanking the Lord for after such a special evening of feeling loved and accepted. (However to my dear MA friends...it was no "babe" shower. I love you guys. and Wendy, do you recognize anyone?!)
