Last weekend, we found out that we are having another boy!! My husband planned our reveal idea…using motorcycles of course! And to be honest, this gender reveal has been in the works for a full year now. He had planned it with our first and we never got the opportunity to do it. I have dreamed about the day I would see pink or blue coming out of Harley tailpipes for quite some time now. And in all honesty, it didn’t matter to me which color was going to come out last Saturday.
That day, getting to have our family and friends together, seeing all those Harley’s lined up, was seriously such a great day. It was like we had made it to a milestone in our lives and in this little baby’s life that we long awaited for. I legit jumped for joy when I saw blue come out of those tailpipes. I wasn’t jumping for joy because we’re having a boy, but because this was the site I had dreamed about seeing for so many months. A site I truly believed God would let me experience one day…just not sure when that day would get here. A site that we never got to experience with our first baby boy and here we were, a year later, experiencing it with our second. Pure joy. Purely blessed. And incredibly excited.
“Gender disappoint,” is something I truly do not understand….and it kinda makes me angry. I wasn’t going to address this but I got on my pregnancy app this morning and there was a section entitled “getting through the disappointment of your baby’s gender.” Excuse me? God is forming each and every child in his image, they are being fearfully and wonderfully made, with his love and his handiwork. And he is giving each momma, daddy, and family, exactly what they need. Boy or girl. Trust his plan for your life and your baby. There’s plenty of women who would be overjoyed to have a child, no matter the sex. There’s more I could say on this subject but I’m gonna just leave it at this. Every soul is a miracle. Be thankful.
“Patience is a virtue.” Is a phrase that I’ve become very fond of. If anyone knows me, patience is NOT something I’m good at. This season of my life, I have really had to learn how to be patient. There’s been days I have had to practice being patient because there was literally nothing I could do…which can get very frustrating if you let it. But I will say, God’s peace, which transcends all things, is what helped me learn patience and it got me to the day I could see blue powder blowing through the air.
