Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart



The kids have all fallen asleep and Dave and I are enjoying a little quiet time together. I have been thinking a lot lately about choices so I decided to ask him what he thought were some of the better choices he had made. He looked at me for a moment and then answered,"I chose a salad from Fazolis today instead of tacos from Taco Bell." This was not quite what I was expecting so after I quit laughing at him because he had entirely missed my point I gave him a look like "are you serious?" He came back with this. " I chose you, and I chose to have three children instead of only two and I chose a great profession. " Redeemed? Absolutely. Now he was getting it.

This afternoon I watched Blake entertain our sweet Ashley Kate, and I was thankful we chose to listen to His call. Tonight I walked into the girls room and saw Allison leaning over the crib to kiss Ash goodnight, and I was thankful we chose to follow our hearts. Tomorrow morning I will wake up our tiny princess and be greeted with those sleepy eyes and her sweet smile, and I know that I will thank the Father for choosing me.
