I Feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty!! *Update*

Why do I feel like a million bucks while I'm still in the hospital??

Because my sweet, generous friend (**see update at the bottom of this post!**) Genelle bought me an amazing gift to encourage me and make me feel better! No more ugly gray gown with stars and moons - now I have a designer delivery gown and it is SO cute! I feel like a young, healthy pregnant girl instead of generic patient #123 in room #456. Of course I don't want to sound shallow and vain, but it really does make a difference to have a cute outfit when you've been wearing the same old gross potato sack for three weeks. I was feeling as ugly as the gown itself, and it was just one more thing to be discouraged about. Genelle (**and friends**) were so perceptive to pick up on how I must have been feeling - what a gift of love and kindness God put in their hearts! Opening that package made me feel SO special and loved and has really brightened the past couple of days for me. I'm getting compliments from nurses and doctors and it feels awesome! Thank you a million times, Genelle (**and friends**)! You've made me feel incredible and cute!!

**UPDATE** I found out very quickly after writing this that this gown was a gift from several of my good friends from Maryland! Tons of thanks and gratitude also goes out to Amy, Mary, and Jen!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You ladies rock my world!!

I'm so glad you like it! It wasn't just me though. Amy M, Mary W, Jen S and maybe some others (still waiting to hear) also went in on it with me. I wish I could have included a note with the delivery, but the online merchant didn't have an option for that. We girls know how it feels to need to feel pretty, ESPECIALLY when pregnant, and DOUBLE that when you are stuck on bed rest in a hospital! I must say though, you make that gown shine! (Not the other way around.) You are seriously radiant!
