I woke up this morning and had started my cycle. Even though I knew God was going to give us Joy, there was still a part of me that was a little down about not being pregnant. Being the planner that I am, I had thought about all the awesome ways we could tell our family we were pregnant through their Christmas gifts. Even though I knew it was wishful thinking I still couldn’t help but let my mind go there. So when I woke up and realized we weren’t going to be pregnant at Christmas I was a little down.
I was trying to decide what to get for breakfast that morning and had decided I was going to treat myself to some cookies for breakfast. I had planned on running into the gas station but as my car got closer to Dollar General it was like my sweet tooth intensified and something inside told me to go to DG and get the BIG pack of cookies. So I made the quick turn into the parking lot, got my cookies, and made my way to the checkout counter.
As the girl was ringing me up three free standing marquee letters caught my eye down by the gum packs… J. O. Y. I just laughed and got my phone out to take a picture and I told the cashier “I’ll buy those too.”. She said “Awe man, I’m so sorry ma’am those aren’t for sale. A customer just brought those in a few minutes ago and asked if she could leave those there for decoration.”. As my mom said… “That’s my sweet Jesus.”.
