Gratitude journal: The phone call

Tonight I am grateful for the phone call we received this afternoon informing us that the results of my wife’s recent amniocentesis were normal. 

We waited almost forty-eight hours for the phone call, which is actually a  remarkably short period of time considering the sample was sent from Connecticut to New Mexico for analysis.

Nevertheless, forty-eight hours can feel like forty-eight days when you’re waiting for news about your future baby.

We find ourselves feeling quite grateful this evening.
