Do you ever wonder why things happen the way they do? Who are we to know how things are supposed to be? Sometimes our blessings are unexpected. Sometimes we might be unprepared for them. Maybe we don't even know we want... or need.. them. Piper Mary was our unexpected gift. She joined our family on March 18th. This weekend she will be dedicated at our church. The past year has been full of ups and downs, highs and lows, but always there was a light that our children gave us. And I believe that each person in our family has been blessed by this little person. Her big sisters talk so sweetly to her and love to pick out her clothes, feed her, hold her, sing and rock her. Her big brother showers her with kisses. He is so gentle and sweet to her. She was the perfect little addition to our family and now I just can't imagine life without her!
