Joy

So there I was. Chewing my fingernails to the nubs worrying about all the what-ifs and buts and if onlys and wait and ack and argh and oooooooh the sheer drama of it all…when...

...behold! The email server hath delivered unto me…joy, people.

Joy.

Someone I know who has been keeping the faith forever through loss after loss, disappointment after disappointment, waiting and wanting and wishing and hoping JUST HAD TWINS!!!!!

Healthy, beautiful twins.

It is delicious. Absolutely dark-chocolate-for-dinner delicious. I wish it wouldn’t be a major invasion of their privacy to name names and share pictures, because people! This has tickled me right down to my toes.

I have seen the pictures. Mommy = GORGEOUS! Babies = PERFECT! Tama’s Tear Ducts = APPARENTLY CAN STILL PRODUCE TEARS OF JOY!!

Attitude = Adjusted. Can’t worry, too busy squealing and yarn shopping, because…

Knitting Needles = ITCHY!!!!

So, I think it’s a safe bet that no further work will be gotten out of me until after I have placed my yarn order…

(Yay! Twins! Eeeeee!)

(…must…express…love…with…wool!...)

Whee!!!! Congratulations and hugs to your anonymous friend. But come on, surely you can tell a little more. Such as, is your yarn order pink, or blue, or half and half? :)

Oh YAY, babies!!

Wonderful news for your friend. Sometimes, the stork doens't get lost after all.

so simple, yet so true....babies=joy (and teenagers=angst, but there's a few years of joy before that...)

Please pass on my congratulations to your friend. I know a little of the pain she must have gone through and this is truly good news!

Congratulations to your friend on her twins. It's a prime example of the concept of hope—that if one waits long enough and keeps the faith, eventually the good arrives. The dark clouds go away and the sunlight emerges again.
