One year ago....

One year ago I was laying on my couch sick from my all day "morning sickness", just trying to survive the holidays. I was excited, yet nervous, about the prospect of being a mama to three kids. I was anxious about meeting our baby, discovering if we were going to be a family of three girls, or if a beautiful boy was going to join our lives. I knew, no matter what, that this baby would be a defining member of our family, would most likely be our last baby. And then March 18 came. A seemingly normal day...complete with a doctor appt. I remember at the beginning of my appointment I was talking with my doctor about my c-section date, joking about my need to plan everything in my life. Then, just 5 minutes later, my life would change forever. My need to plan everything in life would take on a new meaning. I would begin my journey down this new road. Little did I know, this journey would bring me a a place to share my innermost thoughts and feelings. I was never a writer...never enjoyed it...not even for a moment. Even though I teach writing, a journal was never a thought in my mind. And then I found myself in need of an outlet, a place to share my hurts, fears, pain, loss, joys, FAITH. A place to keep me focused on my faith, my hope, my peace....And through this need, Whispers of Faith was born. I became an official blogger :) The most amazing thing about this journey is the people I am reaching, the hearts I am touching, the faith I am sharing, the support I am receiving, the friends I am making, the joy I am sharing and receiving from others. I have been so humbled in these last 2 weeks by two special people....friends that I have never met, and very well may never meet. Friends who pray for me and care for me....friends who share my Faith! Thank you to Angie and Michelle for each honoring me with my very first 2 blogger awards!! Thank you so much for allowing my sweet baby girl Leah Faith Davis to have a purpose in life, a voice in this world, a whisper of faith! I appreciate both of you and am blessed to have you has my friend.
