A beautiful life

August 22, 2012

I want to remember the calmness, joy, peace, and happiness in my heart this morning.

I woke up to (or never fully went to sleep), from a dog barking outside ALL NIGHT LONG.  ALL NIGHT, ALL MORNING.  And then really woke up at 6:32 to a page (work), threw up, got up, etc.  Threw my dogs some donut scraps, and cereal scraps, because I actually don’t like this kind of cereal.  Got ready for work (this really isn’t an exciting story), chatted with Ian a bit…listened to him butcher both gender baby’s middle names (on purpose or not, I don’t know).  Dry heaved a little bit more, and went to work.

But, when I walked out of those house, I was overcome with this is a good day, a great day.  I am so thankful for this man I married that brings me cereal at 5, 6, or 7am, cleans my barf bowl, or whatever surface I vomited on.  Made me a pb&j today, puts together a dresser for us, cleans up my never ending piles of stuff that I can’t clean up myself, because I can’t stand for that long.  

Moral of this story, is that we are so grateful, and so excited to meet this little son/daughter in (on Friday) 29 weeks-ish, obviously.  I am so overwhelmed with everything good in my life.

    Glad you were able to step back and see beauty in the moment! And these weeks just keep ticking down…your little cutie is going to be here in no time. I know it doesn’t feel like it at times, but as I was washing Jude down in the bath, I was thinking how it felt like yesterday that I was trying on maternity clothes and thinking about what names we liked. And, Ian is such a good man. I am thankful that you have someone that takes such good care of you! What a blessed woman you are!

  3. Congratulations, woman! So excited for you!!
