Apparently I neglected to post this last night - I fell asleep after work. Sorry guys!
The surprise that has changed my life, and brought me more joy than any other was learning that I was pregnant with Huck. He is 12 years old today. My biggest surprise. In raising him, I've grown up a lot. Being pregnant with him gave me such appreciation of the glory that is my body that now I don't ever worry about how I look.
He was the piece of me that I couldn't find at that point, and i am grateful for the surprise of my children every day.
