baby, Our Life

Awe

I am in awe of the life that I am living.

 

First of all, I’m married to this guy.

Which means that he’s stuck with my second-born-ness forever!

As if that weren’t enough, we are 26 weeks pregnant with a baby that will no doubt make our lives even richer.  As I type this, I’m being kicked or punched from within by a true miracle. It just seems so surreal.

According to Albert Einstein, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Those of you who know our history know that we lost two babies before this pregnancy. To continue to try for a child after suffering loss often times felt a little insane. There was fear and there was doubt.

But that’s the amazing thing about faith. It transforms insanity into hope. Faith gave us the ability to keep trying even when it seemed like we might never get pregnant again. It gave us comfort knowing that God would be faithful to keep His promises.

Now here we are, with 99 days to go before our due date, thankful for God’s plan in our lives. I’m thankful for the people who God has placed in our lives to help guide us through this season of life. We have family and friends surrounding us with prayers and love.

And though sometimes I think that we’ve still got so much to prepare before our little one gets here, I’m confident that this child will want for nothing. I know that Stephen will be the best dad I could possibly imagine. I already melt when he kisses and talks to the baby through my belly. I know that he’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that our family is taken care of.

I am in awe of the life that I am living.
