Your list is coming to an end soon. I still don't know how you come up with new things!!! I don't even think I could get to 100, even though I know I'm blessed with 1,000,000 gifts. I want to personally thank you so much for all your support, kind words, uplifting spirit and prayers the past couple weeks as we learned of our pregnancy and conquered the first couple weeks of pregnancy. You are such a light for me and I appreciate you so much! Thank you, again, for everything!!! :)
