Sadie Pie Small Fry is 3

Today is my Sadie's birthday :) .... 
She is a joy.
She is a blessing.
She is our little miracle. 

I sat down with the girls after I put V to bed, and looked at pictures of Sadie from the day she was born.  Sometimes I forget, that she was that itty bitty baby that God protected... our little miracle.

Today I am overwhelmed once again, as I think about what the Lord has done.  There is always a twinge of pain, when I look back... But the God has taken that pain and drown it out with joy and thankfulness. Today I praise the Lord not only for my little Sadie, but for his amazing faithfulness. 

"I will remember the deeds of the LORD;  yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Psalm 77:11-12

  1. Happy Birthday to Sadie!!! I'm going to read her birth story ...probably tomorrow b/c it's 11:25 here in Fl. ;)
    I hope y'all had a fantastic day! I too love looking through our photos...but sometimes it makes me sad to think those days are gone! At least we have our photos & memories....
    God is so good to all of us!!!

  2. Happy Birthday to little Sadie! I read the birth story and felt like I was reading my own birth story. My mom was also pregnant with twins. Twins she named Jennifer and Jessica (if we both happened to be girls). She also lost one of the twins in the second trimester and had so much struggle with her pregnancy. She had already had one miscarriage before and was constantly worried. The doctors said I should have died because the other twin died so late in the pregnancy. It was hard for my mother and while she was joyful about my birth (early as well) she would often think back about what it would be like.
    As the twin I sometimes felt a loss that I didn't understand. When I was growing up I'd feel like a part of me was missing (very occasionally). But, now, my little sister is the twin I didn't have. We have such a wonderful bond and I wouldn't give it up for anything. I know that if my twin survived my sister would not have been born and I wouldn't give her up for anything.

    I recently was pregnant and had my first son. During that time I thought a lot about what my mother must have gone through. The hope, the loss, and the worrying she must have gone through. Reading your story made it really come to life, so thank you for posting it.

    After reading your post I called my mom and told her how things were okay, because I was lucky enough to live the life of me and my unborn sister. The love I've received in my life has always been twofold and I've learned to love back just as hard. I hope for Sadie the wonderful love I've experienced in my life and hope that you are healing in the love that she gives back to you.

  3. I just googled vintage tablecloth curtains for my new kitchen and found a link to your's lovely!

  4. Your blog is lovely. I don't get to visit blogs as often as I once did, but I still check in every once in a while. Also I wanted to thank you for all your sweet free pritables. It is so sweet of you to share your work with us! I don't have children yet (I'm due for my first in may!!!) so I don't use too much yet, but just wait, when my babys are older I'll be leaving a note of every post saying "I downloaded this!" :) Thanks again and God bless you and your family!
