Five years ago today, I sent this email to my best friend many states away:
hi m., this will be a really quick one... i'm just askingthat you cross your fingers and say a little prayerfor us. when i woke up this morning, i had bloodrunning down both my legs. i'm only 22 wks pg...t. raced home and wentwith me to doctor and he said i had a tear on thesurface of my cervix... the baby is doing great, but ihave to be on bed rest for 2 days and restrictedactivity for at least 2 weeks. i know this baby isTOUGH... he or she has proven it before. but i couldstill use any prayers i can get... thanks. i miss youand love you. -jl
Nine days later... our daughter was born.
I was right, though. She IS tough.
And I'm so glad I asked for prayers...
