Two weeks in a row of rain, clouds, and drizzle…followed by today. I have to thank God for the incredible difference it makes just to see the sun!
And then there’s a morning like this one, when I get three incredible blessings all put together:
1. Mom time! I don’t get to hang out with my Mom all that often, so a trip with her to the midwife, the fabric store, and Dunkin’ Donuts is a real treat.
2. Midwives are awesome! This is my first time going the midwife route and it’s been just what I hoped for. She helped me feel the baby’s head position, talked with me candidly about what I did and did not want during labor/delivery, and discussed diet and herbs with me. Made me feel like a million bucks and sent me on my way to get larger.
3. Movement! Every time the nurse asks me “Fetal movement?” I have been able to answer “yes” – and I know that’s not something to be taken for granted.
So I don’t think it’s the caffeine in my iced coffee (which I forgot to request as DECAF) that’s giving me a buzz today. It’s a breath of fresh air – blessings blowing in all directions.
And a reminder from God: Next time my day is cloudy, drizzly, cold, boring, achy, exhausting, or annoying, I should pray for someone else to have a great day. Really pray. And then trust that God knows what’s best for me, including the timing of sun and sweet mornings.
ps. I’m also thankful that in about 6 or 7 weeks, I’ll be able to bend over again like the guy in the photo below (imagine: Weeeeeeeeeee! My knees! My toes! My shoelaces!).
