a Friday afternoon trip to CHOP

CHOP stands for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. That’s where I went this afternoon. One of my friends was going to go visit our friend, Sharon, who is currently living there because a precious little treasure. So, I asked if I could tag along 🙂

{hee hee. she’s going to kill me for putting that one up there… but her face is just too funny!}

We had a lovely afternoon trip. {It might have helped a little that the sun was shining and it had to be 70 degrees.}

We had crepes for lunch and a little walk in the sunshine. BEEaaaUUUtiFUL!

i HEART this girl. 🙂 i’m so blessed by her friendship. i’ve really really really missed her while she’s been too busy {with good reason} in Philly. and really, doesn’t she look beautiful after just having a baby a couple weeks ago?? um yes. drop dead gorgeous.

there we go, that’s a better photo of both of us 🙂 and look at how adorable she is with her little baby bump! thanks for the fun afternoon friend!!

Sharon and Sarah. You both amaze me. Let me tell you guys, these two women are amazing and beautiful and the sweetest in the world. They both have such a grace about them that makes me look up to them. they both are strong women who God is using every single day. i’m so lucky to have both of them as friends! thanks for being my friend, you guys! {ok, sorry, getting all mushy.}

so then i got a real treat…

i got to visit with the little miracle. if you want to check out his amazing story, go to their blog! it will make you cry and it will make you gasp at what God did. This little guy is a real life miracle. he wasn’t suppossed to be able to breathe when the breathing tubes came out… and yet… he did! God be glorified!

i felt like such a lucky girl to be able to hold him this afternoon! thanks SO much Sharon! 🙂

and this is the picture i picked for today. Husbuddy didn’t like that it was blurry. but i LOVE that it’s blurry. so there. we agree to disagree 😉 i think  it feels dreamy.

    How’s this? I teared up just thinking about going and reading ‘miracle baby’s’ blog. In light of the disasters taking place all over our planet these days, good news is awe inspiring! God is so faithful to re-assure His people that we have never been forgotten or deserted!

    Owen is such a beautiful baby! I know I don’t know this little guy, but ever since you told me about him and all that he’s been through in his life already, I pray for him daily! I pray for his mom and dad and that they find strength and comfort from the only one who can truly provide it. If you get the chance to go back and visit this sweet boy, blog about it again! He is a miracle and I love reading about him. 🙂
