Thoughts on Life

I'm not always the best at expressing myself, so bare with me! Lately I feel like its been hard for me to put on a happy face. I find this ridiculous because I am incredibly blessed by my loving family and wonderful friends and amazing God. I just feel like hiding lately, I don't feel like answering the phone, and I don't feel like doing much of anything. Sometimes this is how I act when I feel overwhelmed. We've had a hard year, Sam has especially and I just don't understand why so much joy has been robbed because of different circumstances.

Then I think about how special my life is right now and I don't want to miss a second of it. I know that Matilda is coming soon even if it's not as soon as I would have hoped...I know that she's healthy and that makes me happy.

I just need to stop focusing on my double chin, swollen feet, and lack of sleep.

Carpe Diem!

oh and ps tonight is a full mooooon

The theory is that the moon's gravitational pull effects the amniotic fluid in much the same way as it effects the water in the sea, rivers and even the water that's otherwise found in our bodies.

I know you are hiding now, but if you need a pick me up or even dinner made for you guys, you know I would LOVE to help out!! I think about you both all the time and you put it so poignantly that much of your joy has been marred with worry and sorrow. Hard to believe I am sure, but I find YOU to be an inspiration. Your happy home, your beautiful family and your unique perspective are something I look forward to reading and hearing about. You will have so much more to look forward too. God never gives you mroe than you can bear - trite but so true. Eric and I love you (and Matilda already) and we are always here!!!!!

I saw that amazing moon last might also. I wished I could take a picture. I did slow down enough to enjoy it for a few minutes.
