my heart is going to burst!

So yesterday was my last day of working! Can't tell you how relieved and great I feel knowing that I have a few weeks to finish preparing for Kate's arrival. These next couple weeks are going to be a blast, have so many fun things planned and lots of rest to get caught up on! Anyway, yesterday was a great day in the Andrews household. As I said it was my last day of working, I got a ton of shopping done (household items, we are set until the new year!) and then I got a couple text messages from Chris with pictures of a big present. He called me a couple hours later to tell me that the firm took him out to celebrate his birthday and then they also threw him a surprise baby shower!!! I am still overwhelmed by all that they did for us, I really can't believe it. Chris came home (very proud) with a large pink basket that was FILLED with baby girl goodies! From clothes, bibs, diapers, wipes, books, laundry detergent toys, bottle cleaners, bath name it! AND...on top of that was a very very generous gift card to Babies R Us and another very generous American Express gift card (for us to use after Kate comes) and also a bag of Starbucks coffee to keep Chris awake during those night feedings :) What company does that these days? It was such a blessing. How do I even thank them? His job alone and the way they treat him is the biggest blessing in itself. (side note: I am going to be very honest) Just this past week I was arguing with God about doing something nice for someone. In my heart I wanted to buy this friend of mine a gift but then I kept going back and forth on if I should spend the money or not. My heart overruled my mind (thank God) and I bought the gift for my friend. It made me feel really good and I told the Lord that I was just going to trust Him. Well, let me tell you.. He has blessed us ten fold! It was such a great reminder to me last night. He always provides and I am so glad that I was able to bless someone this week (in a small way) because we have been completely blessed. Chris and I have been so amazed and overwhelmed by the love and support that has been shown to us with our baby girl on the way. We are so undeserving of this love...
