Simply Thankful Sunday – Aiden Gabriel


Normally I try to do Simply Thankful Saturday but yesterday most definitely got away from me.  Yesterday was Aiden’s 5th birthday – yay!!  We had a party planned and fun times.  Until Aiden woke up throwing up.  And continued to throw up all day long.  My poor sweet guy was sick on his birthday.  That left little time for blogging but I am no less thankful for him.

Five years ago yesterday I was blessed with this:

That’s the first photo we were able to get with Aiden and I.  He was born at 1:58 a.m. but I didn’t get to hold him like this until after 4:00 a.m.  He was stubborn and came in to the world a bit traumatically so he had to be taken care of a little before we could cuddle.  I hope I never forget this moment for as long as I live.

People just coming to this blog may not really know our story but Aiden was hard fought for.  We tried for three years to conceive and suffered a miscarriage before becoming pregnant with him.  There’s a song I love that says “I want to know what it’s like, to bring a dream to life”.  That’s what Aiden was.  He was and is our dream come true.  We had no idea our lives were missing something huge until Aiden (and then Livi!) came in to our lives.  I thank God every day that he is in my life, I am grateful we have been blessed with him.

So happy birthday a day late (although we will be partying it up next weekend!) to my sweet guy.  I love you and look forward to the lifetime of birthdays we will get to share.

About Brandy

I'm a wife to my amazingly talented writer husband, Gabe, and a mom of two, Aiden and Olivia. In my free time (ha!) I'm a registered nurse. More importantly than the rest, I am part of an Apostolic Pentecost church and am currently a Sunday School teacher. I care deeply about my service for the Lord and part of that is being a modest woman. Modesty isn't just part of my religion, it's my life and how I live every day, but being modest doesn't mean having no fashion or fun. And that's what I want to show you here. I hope you come along for the ride.
