Thought of the day...

"Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle."

For the past two weeks, I've been trying to figure out how to go into labor. Today my cousin sent me Erma Bombeck's poem about things she would do differently and I decided that this isn't so bad. Yes, my back hurts. Yes - my belly aches sometimes. Yes - the stretchmarks are starting to take on an identity of their own. But, she's warm and she's happy and here I am assisting God in a miracle. Yes - this is a great and wonderful thing.

okay, you gave me goosebumps while reading that. you're right, your assisting the Big Guy in a huge miracle. You're right, Baby X is in there, all tight and snug, enjoying every last minute.
You should too.
Love ya girl,
Tina

Now on my second and only 6 weeks along I know this time I am going to take it slow and not rush it. I cant even remember much about being preg the first time and I wished it away. It was over so so fast and seemed like a dream. I am going to enjoy every second of this one...the good, bad and painful. Congrats on your new one soon!!!!
