- I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

Let's have a baby!
I have been up since 1:15 a.m. with a sore throat. Nooooooooooooooo. Nate got up to check on me while I was in the kitchen gargling salt water and honey (with no chaser bc I'm not supposed to eat or drink anything. which reminds me, I'm so hungry.) and prayed for me. He put his hands on my neck and prayed that healing would take place.
It was such a cool moment.
I've been praying all morning ... keeping a spirit of gratitude while requesting a miraculous healing. I've also been praying for health. For me and for the baby. There are so many unknowns.
Last night I told Nate that I don't look at situations like this as "everything will be great, God's in control!!", but rather "everything is going to go according to His plan. that may mean that we experience a great loss or that everything runs perfectly, but either way we will survive and we will learn from it. and we will give thanks."
I'm not naive to the fact that many things could go horribly wrong this morning. I'm trusting that we will be made stronger no matter the outcome. I'm praying for a perfect baby. I'm praying for my safety.
And I will give thanks continuously.
Here we go!!!
