Blessed

Do you ever have moments in life where you feel like you have been blessed with too much?  Moments in life where you feel like God has given you things that could do without?  Moments where you feel like you don’t deserve the life you have?  Today is one of those days.  I don’t know why I have been so “spiritually” connected today.  I have felt closer to God and close to my family, even though they are hundreds of miles away.
As the countdown to Jackson’s arrival draws to an end, my thoughts are continually focused around him.  It hasn’t been until recently that I’ve had thoughts of worry about our situation.  I wonder how I am going to do it.  I wonder how Megan will do it.  I wonder how the surgeons will do it.  Most of all I wonder how God will do it.
I think the answers to those questions can be answered by a scripture that is close to my heart; “But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance” (1st Nephi 1:20).
I am overwhelmed with a feeling of gratitude and love for God, my family and friends.  I am feeling the weight on my shoulders of the impending trial.  I am also feeling an even greater feeling of support on the very ground I walk on. 
Many are asking what they can do to help.  In simple, pray.  A little prayer, a good thought or just a smile in our direction would be more than I could ask for.
Love you guys.

    This will be an amazing time in your life where you see the great miracles of God, whether they be the miracles you expect or not. It's great to have the time to really connect to God and to put all in His hands. Good luck! You'll be in our prayers
