the end of one, the beginning of the next
Yesterday was a momentous day for me. After about four months of working on it on and off, I finally finished my book! My goal was to have it finished before we got a baby, but as always, this timing was better. I was able to include Adrienne in the final chapter of the book, and in a way, the story would not have been complete without her. This chapter of my life did not end with Poppy's death, or even with the grieving in the following months. No, in order to see the full picture, you have got to see the new life that came out of her death. God placed new life in my heart first, and then he brought new life into our arms. Now I truly feel like this chapter in my life is closing while the next is just beginning.
