Being a new mommy to two kiddos means…I’m always tired, and I don’t always get to sleep at night! I have been wanting to write this post for several days, but I’m just now getting around to it.
On Saturday, July 23rd, I was the recipient of a “Shower of Blessings” in the form of a baby shower for Nolan. The ladies at Bethel Baptist Fellowship surprised me (yes – I was really surprised) and hosted the shower while my mom was in town. Ben’s mom and sister also came down for the shower.
Ben told me we were going to the Aquarium, but we had to stop at church first to finish a project. (It was something that I had been asking nagging him to do for a few weeks). He got me into the auditorium by saying he left his Bible there earlier that morning during the visitation outreach. When I walked through the door I was greeted with “surprise” by all of the ladies and girls of the church.
I never suspected a thing. The ladies got together and bought us a new double stroller as I blogged about here. I never expected, or suspected a shower was in the works too…especially since this was my second baby.
The shower was full of all of my favorite things – Mexican food, my favorite hymn, a wonderful challenge from God’s Word, and the sweet fellowship of my Christian friends. It was a lovely afternoon, and our family was indeed showered with blessings – above measure!

I know there were many people involved in making the shower happen. I don’t know everyone who helped, but I know that Agnes was “in charge” and Mary did the games and decorations. (At least I think I know that!)
