It happened in a blink

On Wednesday, June 30th I experienced something that I wish no one would ever have to experience. I was at work eating lunch with my dad (I work at a family business), and a guy walked in and pulled a shot gun on us and rob us. In the blink of an eye my life was changed. The thoughts going through my head were my baby, protecting my baby and please don’t let my dad get shot. It never crossed my mind that I would get hurt. My heart was racing, but God was there with us. I knew in my heart that if we just gave him what he wanted that he would leave and not hurt us. Since then they have caught the guy and that is very comforting to us all. In some strange way I feel God had prepared me for this. He knew this was going to happen. I don’t know why he did not stop it from happening; all I can do is thank him for protecting us! There is a lot of healing going on and each day I think we all get a little better. There will be positive things that come from this horrible June day….I know!!! I am now always conscience of my surroundings and my guard is up. It is amazing the things you can go through with God by your side! He is amazing and I thank Him every day for protecting us!

The baby and I are doing well. At my last doctors appointment my blood pressure was higher than normal and I had not gained any weight in a month but after everything I had just gone through my doctor was okay with that. At my next appointment I have to do my Glucose test, I am worried about that since I have been Hypoglycemic my entire life.

I feel like I am running out of time to get everything finished. This pregnancy is going by way too fast!!! We do have a crib and dresser and are still looking for an antique wardrobe. We still need to paint the crib and distress it (to be done by my dad & sister), but I know that will get done. I am so excited fixing up her nursery and getting all these baby items in our house seem surreal to me! I hung some of the clothes that we have received as gifts in her closet and Marcus opened the door and was shocked to see those little clothes in the closet! To say the least we are enjoying this pregnancy experience immensely!

Oh my goodness, I had no idea! I immediately thought "I've had dinner with Uncle Jeff since then and he never mentioned it!" However, I checked my calendar just now and it was actually June 29th that we got together, the day before it happened. Wow! What an experience. So glad you, your dad and my newest baby cousin are okay! Cannot wait to meet her in November :)

So glad you, your dad and the newest Kyler addition are okay! Cannot wait to meet her in November :)

I read about that and thought about you. I guess I was hoping you weren't there. I'm so sorry you had to experience that. Glad you are doing ok.
