Isaiah 40:11
He tends His flock like a shepherd
He gathers the lambs in His arms & carries them close to His heart;
He gently leads those that have young.

I love celebrating Easter each year. It is a day to celebrate what Jesus did for me and I always look forward to church, family, and of course the Easter egg hunt. However, Easter this year was one of the hardest days for me since we've been at the hospital. There is something so unnatural about having a baby and not being able to bring her with you wherever you go. It didn't matter where we were and who we were with I couldn't stop crying. I felt like I was in a movie montage where everywhere I looked there were family's with little babies or moms and daughters. I felt so sorry for myself. The only place I felt normal that day was in the hospital, where Gracie could be with us.
This was the first time Gavin got to visit Gracie and he loved it. We did an Easter egg hunt in her room and now every time he visits he asks where the candy is. :) He is seriously the most precious child and I can't believe how well he is doing with his mommy being gone most of the time. The nurses where so amazing to let our family's from both sides come visit (I wish I had a picture of the Young's). Gracie loved getting passed around. How cute is she in her little Easter dress?
God is so good and so faithful to get us through the good days and the tough days. He is so gentle and so compassionate with us. I felt His arms that day.
