A year ago today....

A year ago today I thought I had contracted some rare illness. Surely there had to be some reason that I was so tired I could barely make it home from work without literally falling asleep at the wheel. Perhaps it was the first month of school that had done me in, maybe it was my early morning runs catching up with me, or maybe I had somehow contracted a rare illness. On this day a year ago I remember Brad had a double header softball game. I went to cheer him on the first game and had to leave home before the second game even started for fear of falling asleep in the bleachers. It was then on my drive home that I started thinking about this "rare illness" I had. While putting the pieces of it all together I suddenly remembered my mom telling me, "I never really got sick at the beginning of pregnancy, just really really tired." UH UH OH MY GOSH UH UH....was said out loud multiple times in my car as it all started coming together. When Brad got home that night we got a pregnancy test. Surely it couldn't be positive...I was after all on the pill.

A year ago today I had no idea our lives would be changed forever. A year ago today we had not planned on having a baby.THANKFULLY, a year ago today God knew EXACTLY what he was doing. A year ago today we discovered I was 4 weeks pregnant and God began preparing our hearts for the best gift we would ever receive. A gift we can't imagine our life without!


  1. I very well remember us asking and you guys lying about that very exact realization ... I am so so happy you have precious little Karis :) We love the Boek Family.
