A new miracle got added to my list this weekend. I had been having a rough time adjusting to a new way of life and I was out with my dearest friends doing some shopping. For over a year now I have been looking for the perfect "hoodie." Some may wonder why it has taken me so long to find? I guess you can just call me picky. Well, we were out and there it was the perfect hoodie AND it was on clearance!! I was in love. The only problem was unlike when I fell in love with my soul-mate, this time I fell in love with two different hoodies. One was black and one was green. My non-pregnant self yearned for that green hoodie but my conventional self said go with the black. So, I put the green hoodie back and strolled up to the register. All the way I felt proud that I was only buying one and sad because I truly wanted the other.
The night moves on I am then swept up in an evening of intrigue. First, one friend swept me out of the store right after I checked out to go to another store. Second, another friend insists on carrying my bags to the car for me. Third, I get to the car and this same friend won't give me my things back until I let her know I need my keys. Weird moments but nothing too "off." After more laughs and fun, I head home and retrieve my black hoodie. I grab the bag and realize "that's not my bag." You see there were TWO hoodies in it. One black and one green. After a moment of confusion the events of the evening came together for me. My dear friends who know my heart so well, bought me that green hoodie that I so wanted. They bought it and surprised me with it. I was moved more than they will ever know. That simple act might not of been a big deal to them, but that green hoodie will forever remind me of how loved I am and how blessed.
The pictures will not do this justice.
So, to those who are in need of a "green hoodie" I pray that you find friends like mine that love you enough to get one for you! Love you "clack!"
