Okay, maybe it is all in my mind, but this time I seem to be having a lot more “symptoms” than last time. I got my perfect score on this little test at 7:00AM last Friday… only an hour and a half before Dawn and I gave our first conference on Blogging. I begged the husband, “Please, I just don’t want to know yet.” But he dragged me to Target Thursday night anyway. Amazingly, he was a lot more enthusiastic than I was. I had to apologize later in my prayer journal for my lack of joy. Because I do want to be joyful. Especially about this.
I think I was more shocked than anything – even with the symptoms. My heart was just having a hard time pinning itself to my sleeve again after our sad first day of school last year. So please, if you think about me this Wednesday as I go in for my first doctor appointment, say a prayer for us. My daughter is so excited she can hardly think of anything else. She has already claimed the baby and is going to “keep it in her room”. She keeps telling me, “I think it is going to be different this time, mama. Don’t worry.”
I can tell you one thing… napping has become a daily event in the Bee household. Sometimes it is in the evening, sometimes after lunch… but it isn’t a question of IF. Just a question of WHEN. Today after we ate lunch I was so tired I couldn’t even make it back up the stairs. I laid down and drooled on the couch pillows while the kids did the dishes. Such is pregnancy in your mid-30’s. Maybe Antique Mommy has some advice?
Whatever the reason we have been so blessed, I praise the Lord in advance… no matter how the future plays out. For I trust in Him.
And if you want to read some excellent inspiring praise today, please don’t miss Ann Voskamp’s ode to our creator over at Holy Experience. Ann is always busy finding the miraculous in the mundane – the opulent in the ordinary. I’m going to try and do some of the same (in-between naps).
