It has been a month since these were taken and my belly is so much bigger now. I am just being honest, it could mostly be all of the pizza. Today we are 20 weeks along and doing great. Being pregnant is something I have always dreamed of. There were many days it wasn’t happening and my plan wasn’t working out. Some days It was deeply painful to see a cute pregnant woman cross my path in Target. At times this small encounter drew tears to my impatient and emotional eyes. It is difficult to want something so bad, so long, and be told only to “Wait”. We go through all sorts of stages of waiting for that next big thing. We wait for the right person to marry. We wait to get that degree we have worked for for years. We wait for babies. We wait for retirement. We even wait for a trial to come to an end. Life is a waiting game and I think Mary Poppins would tell us wisely that there is an element of fun to be had in all of this waiting. My advice today is to enjoy your waiting game. Find the joy in today and remember that after you are done waiting for this very special thing… there will be something else to wait for right after. Thanks for stopping by!
