It’s not every day that celebrities stop by for a visit- in your own backyard.
Over 2236 miles (or 3600 km) from home, the incredibly generous and humble couple, Jeff & Jennifer Usner of ABC’s Secret Millionaire took moments out of their full itineraries to come by and say hello.
Oh…and I was one week past my due date. And in early labor.
They prayed with us. Specifically, that I would have a quick, healthy delivery. In fact, Jennifer said “quick” more than once…the prospect of which made me feel more than just a little shaky in the knees!
We chuckled at the timing of their visit and laughed at the challenges of our beautiful BC Ferries and island travel in the summertime. Al took them on a little farm tour, introducing their beautiful children to our goats & pigs.
By then, my midwife had arrived. Our visit was short and sweet, and they carried on with evening plans to sight see at the popular Butchart Gardens, just down the road from where we live.
Two and a half hours later, we welcomed our 7lb 6oz son into the world, in the comfort of my own living room, surrounded by dear friends and family.
Quick and healthy? Absolutely! It was my easiest birth by far, with only a half hour of hard labor followed by two quick pushes! I was overjoyed and in absolute unbelief when it was all over so soon- holding my sweet baby in my arms!
What an incredible honor and privilege to work with these two, and to call them friends.
Thank-you Jeff & Jennifer Usner for taking the time to bless us, pray for us, and to make the birthday of our son even more memorable. Our hearts are abundantly full of gratitude and joy!
