I started this blog because we were pregnant and thought it would be a great way to document all the steps along the way for all of our family and friends that aren’t here. It will serve that purpose again one day, but I am struggling with not wanting to write anything… because I don’t want to be one of ‘those’ people. Well… get over it – you don’t have to read it 🙂
We are out of the water on healing from losing the baby… I actually find myself looking at people’s pictures online of their newly born babies and get excited. Mother’s Day wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. It always helps to have pastors like ours. He threatened me that if I didn’t come up to get a rose when he called for the ‘moms’, he would call me out by name if necessary. Love Pastor Andy!
Started a new bible study on Ephesians with our small group last night. Should be good! I haven’t done a study like that in a while… the most recent studies I have done were topical and jumped around. Both types have their place, but I am excited about the switch to Ephesians. Sometimes verses can be taken out of context… or perhaps they make more sense with the understanding of the passage. We are off to a good start!
David will be traveling to Louisiana next weekend for Cory’s graduation as Dr. Collins! So proud! Cory was David’s Best Man in our wedding. I have only gotten to know him over the last few years, but David and Delaine are very proud of him! Then the next week Tori is coming to Tampa! Not sure of the exact date… but she is coming! I can’t wait! In the few weeks before she gets here, I look through Target and other places for little things to store in my special basket for her! Some of it for her birthday, some fun things for us to do or make over the summer… some things that are just plain silly. So my scouting has already begun… so far: sidewalk chalk, an awesome shirt that says ‘Love’ in crazy letters, a green squishy ball (for throwing… or whatever), a little scrapbook (with stickers and stuff, to document the summer!), hmm… I think there are a few more things, but I can’t remember them all.
So I have had several people ask me if we are going to try again with the baby business. The answer is complicated. I have some medical stuff to tend to. Nothing major, just stuff that needs to get out of the way…. abnormal cells and such. Also, we aren’t trying… but we aren’t NOT trying. I will let all of you draw your own conclusions. I am not typing the details. We also are about half way to our weight loss goals. So, we are leaving it in God’s hands for now.
I have to be honest and say that I wouldn’t mind trying again. After losing something that you didn’t know you wanted… it makes you want it even more.
