Yesterday I was sitting in the bath thinking to myself, I really haven't felt this baby move yet. I know everything is O.K. I am just getting excited about this child growing inside of me. I do a lot of my praying in the bath because it seems to be the only time I have to myself. So yesterday as I was praying I asked God to let me feel the baby move. I thought to myself after I had prayed this I know the baby has to be a certain size and maybe it is just not big enough yet. So I went on with my day and didn't really think about this again.
So last night I had put all the children to bed and was laying on the couch watching T.V., and guess what? I felt it. It was not just a little flutter or anything it was distinctive movement and it
went on for about 5 minutes. I had a mixture of emotions flood through me at that instant. Happiness and excitement for this new little life, a little sadness remembering that I never got to feel baby Charlie kick and move around, and very thankful that I have a Heavenly Father who really cares about me and knows what I need when I need it. I felt like last night God was saying to me, "Susan I am always here and nothing is too little for you to ask me, just come and sit at my feet and I will listen."
So since last night my newest little bundle has been letting me know, " Momma I'm right here growing big and strong." I guess we have passed another milestone and what a glorious one this was.
