*I’m going to have a baby in less than 12 weeks! I’m in awe of how quickly this time has gone by and I’m so excited for her to be here. I had my wisdom tooth removed yesterday and on the drive to the dentist’s office I was incredibly nervous. In fact, I was so nervous I started crying. I was petrified that having the procedure done would somehow harm Grace. I realized on the drive to the dentist’s office that my life is forever changed. Grace isn’t even here yet but she’s already a part of me, figuratively and literally. I feel really blessed with the amount of love I have had in my life from my mother to my husband; Fenix, my niece and nephew, my friends, and now Grace. It’s like my heart is being opened in an entirely different way. I can’t even explain it. I’m just so grateful to have her and now that she’s on her way there’s no way I can imagine my life without her. In some ways I feel like she was a part of me long before Ken and I even become pregnant. She’s not even here yet and Ken and I have already discussed how he’ll be walking her down an aisle one day.
*I have an amazing husband. I really do. He has been so good to me. He’s taken on so much at the house, especially since my tooth has been bothering me. He’s done pretty much all of the cooking and cleaning in these last few weeks. He’s rubbed my back constantly to help me fall asleep. He has put up with my temper tantrums (and believe me, I’ve had them) when I’ve gotten frustrated over my tooth flaring up. He hasn’t been disappointed when I’ve had to cancel plans or dinner. The bottom line is, he has really taken care of me. I know that’s his role as a husband, so I’m not surprised, I’m just so grateful for him. It’s not even just these last few weeks, it’s how Ken always is. The other day we were doing some quick shopping at the store that he works at and we ran into one of his elderly customers. Ken and introduced us and she told me what a good husband I have and what a great help he is to her. This isn’t the first time that this has happened either. I really appreciate my husband’s compassion.
*I’m lucky to have the friends that I do. Friends that pray for me when I need it and friends that stop by with a milk shake and to check up on me when I’ve had a procedure done. I really appreciate my friends. I am very fortunate.
There really is no reason for this post, other than to say that I’ve been feeling very grateful lately.
