Just when I didn't think things could get ANY better, we found out that the owners of the house we love accepted our offer this morning! PRAISE JESUS! It's a cool cat ranch house one street behind us. It has a full finished basement with 5, yes, 5 bedrooms. The best part, we can pay it off in 5 years!!! Debt free before I am 40....how sweet it is!!!!
I again can't put into words the love and prayers we have felt from our family, friends, and strangers in the last 24 hours. The e-mom was supposed to go to the doctor this morning but it got postponed to Thursday so we are just waiting. We are trying to make tentative plans for the kids, but it's kind of hard since we don't know when we are going, etc. We have had some wonderful friends in Houston offer their homes to us so we don't have the expense of a hotel while we are there. Right now, our "tentative" game plan is that I will get on a plane the minute we get the call she is in labor as she does want me there for delivery! Then, Jonathan will drive down so that we have a car while we are there. We will probably be in Houston for about 7 days.
I actually bought a few boy things today. I didn't go crazy, just a few outfits and two blankets. I don't have much boy stuff so this is going to be fun! People keep asking what we need: prayers. We feel them, we need them, and that is the most important thing right now. The rest will fall into place. Oh, and because I'm cheap, if you know anyone that has frequent flyer miles that I could buy cheaper than a last minute ticket, shoot me an email. I HATE to pay full price for anything, but because it will be so last minute, my little trip down is going to cost a pretty penny. Every dime counts at this point.
So, that's the update for the day. Again, thank you doesn't seem like enough, but it's all I've got. GOD IS IN CONTROL!
