Permission to Take a Break

Posted by on Mar 10, 2011 in Family | 5 comments

Thirty six weeks. A seemingly long thirty six weeks ago it was boiling hot July. Our family was preparing for high school summer camp to be followed by Matt leaving for three weeks overseas and then another two weeks on the east coast. I was finally fitting into most of my pre-pregnancy clothes. Abigail was just learning to sit up on her own. And God was working another miracle. (Click here to read the story!)

Four weeks. Just four short weeks from yesterday is April 6, Aubrey Michelle’s due date. I can’t believe how fast the time is flying. I also can’t believe that I will be the mother of two precious little girls.

The days are running long… chasing after a quick crawler, doing my best to bend over, resting when possible, and learning, again, to sleep on my side. I’m constantly trusting in God for energy, trying to keep my emotions in check, and continuing to say “no” when needed.

For these reasons, I must say “see you soon” to my blog. This is not goodbye – just see you around May. The little energy I have needs to be focused on my family. My head still swarms with blog ideas, and I’m excited to start posting them for you after Aubrey arrives and we’ve started to adjust to our new family.

Please be in prayer for us! Hopefully, I’ll be able to post a few pictures after she arrives!!
