Today is the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (just FYI, it's a movable feast day that always occurs 19 days after Pentecost and is always on a Friday).
While growing up, I recall many litanies to the Sacred Heart and prayers to the Sacred Heart during the month of June (the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart) at our local parishes. I wouldn't say that I had a devotion to the Sacred Heart, but was drawn a bit to it.
But now, the devotions and prayers have a bit more sentimental meaning and have generated a new-found love for Him. Why?

One year later, on the exact same feast day, we found out we were expecting her:

I couldn't agree more.
Happy Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus!
