The theme was "story." As soon as I saw dozens of children's books sitting on tables and shelves, it made me smile. Being showered again, but this time for our second little boy. Reminded of my story and how it continues to unfold and be written out and how having another baby is another glorious chapter in that story.
My baby shower was thrown by my sweet cousin-friend and a dear girlfriend who
both know my heart well. And "story" was the most perfect theme choice. The sweetest gift was a book for Jacob that was signed by friends near and far to remind my little boy how much he is loved and was loved long before he even arrived. As I sat and read the inscriptions last night, I wept at the goodness of it all.
