Day 21. Something to mark day 21. There are days when I have so much I want to say, and others where my words won’t touch what I’m thinking or feeling by any stretch. Tonight is one of the latter. It’s late, and I’m tired, but very awake. I’m processing a lot, but somehow peaceful. God is gracious in this way.
The highs and lows today are significant, but I’m most thankful for these things as the day winds to a close:
-Baby is still tucked safely away and reminding me of new life as he or she moves and shifts every few minutes within.
-I am surrounded by beautiful friends…women God has placed in my life for this season, and some, undoubtedly, for a lifetime.
-My family is a continuous and abundant blessing in my life–Jason and I are a team, always growing through what’s beautiful, what’s hard, what’s surprising and what’s deeply rich. Henry and Eloise bring laughter and adventure and so many reminders of our good, good Father, every single day. I am humbly grateful.
I don’t have words tonight, but I do have confidence that tomorrow will bring a new day, and with it, a step closer to meeting this sweet baby. I am learning so much about giving in to this process and letting go so that God can be the one to move.
with love and a hopeful heart,
