Last weekend my wonderful friends gave me and Elizabeth Grace a beautiful and meaningful “blessing brunch.” I was so honored and so humbled by their generosity and sincerity.
Everything was gorgeous!
But the best part was the company! My mom and sis got to be there:
And so did my Mother-in-love:
My highschool BFFs made an 8 hour drive from TN and suprised me!
And we cried, of course.
But we laughed too!
We also had a time of prayer (which I SO wish had been photographed, but…I guess we were all praying, ha!). Anyway, it was beautiful and profound and something I will never forget.
I also received many, many incredible gifts.
This might be my favorite. It’s a box filled with letters from friends and family. Touching and heartfelt thoughts, prayers, scriptures, songs and poems. I know people must have just poured themselves into it. A treausure.
Some beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry:
Some incredibly special handmade presents…
And Elizabeth received some absolutely gorgeous hand made clothing and blankets as well!
I’m not sure I can express how overwhelmingly loved and cared for that I felt, or how much I felt like Elizabeth was loved and cared for. I have been praising God for the friends that he’s placed around me at this time in my life and never before have I been more grateful. Each prayer that you lift up, each encouraging word that you speak to me, every tear that you shed on my behalf–it’s all so very deeply appreciated. Thank you, thank you.
