Thankful Thursday 29

What CHRIXEAN is thankful for this week

God answered my prayer!

I’ve been asked so many times by my OB-GYN and by friends if I wanted to have a 4d ultrasound done so I could see Keira’s lovely face up close. Of course I’d love that, but spending so much for such a procedure (which costs 10X more than an ordinary 2d ultrsound!) is to me impractical and extravagant. Even if I could afford it, I cannot bring myself to spend that much on something which is unnecessary. Plus, I know the money could be used for other more important things that need to be settled. So my answer was always, “I’ll have the 4d done ONLY if God blesses me with it”. Meaning – if He gave it to me for free.

How could I have doubted that such a gift would not be given to me?

As I was touring the hospital’s Diagnostic center facilitiesfor a commemorative book project my company was commissioned to do, I was told very casually that they had just recently acquired a brand new 4D ultrasound machine! And the best part of all, I could have an ultrasound demonstration for FREE! I was in shock! The words FREE rang loudly in my mind. Thank you, papa God! Oh my!

So below is the first ever 4D portrait of my lovely baby girl 8 months inside me…. Everyone…meet Keira!

My company My Left Hand Creative Solutions celebrated its 5th year in business. I would NEVER have imagined that this business would have made it this far. I started the company as a reason for me to have work while I shifted from my corporate life to that of a stay-at-home mom. 5 years later, I have more than 60 clients in my portfolio, a husband who works with me full time as head of marketing, a creative team and staff who supports the company’s growth through their marvelous work contributions, brand new equipment and a newly-renovated and expanded office. Praise God for his love and faithfulness in providing for our company’s growth and for using the business to be a vessel of blessings to other people.

Wow. God is so neat! I love when He answers our prayers like that...working things out so perfectly. Little Keira is beautiful. Now I know you are getting so excited, escpecially now that you have seen her this way:)

I think getting and maintaining clients are the hardest things - I jus started my own company - well registered a name anyway but happy to read about your success - to many more years!

Aha! And guess who was fortunate enough to have been the first (aside from the mom, of course) to see this little angel in all her 4D glory? I was just as excited as Peachy to be in the same room to witness this modern miracle of technology that allow us to see so much more than the usual hazy grey outlines seen on ordinary ultrasound monitors. I was fascinated and amazed to see Keira up close and personal, blinking her eyes, yawning, and even moving her arms, a whole month before anyone will see her in the flesh. What an experience!

See you soon, baby girl!
