As easy as apple pie
I could say that about pregnancy thus far, but it would be a bit of a stretch. Though I've have an a great six months of mom-to-be preparation, I'm now starting to feel the reality of my growing belly. I can't complain one bit though....God has been so good. He teaches me something new every day through this process of waiting and anticipation and growing.
This fall is like no other I have ever experienced. The fact that the temperature is slowly dropping and the leaves are changing are just reminders that life as I currently know is coming to big turn. I'm both happy and sad, excited and scared. I'm trying my best to enjoy these last few months like a fine wine, slowly and fully. And yet, I find days slipping by like water and my to-do list of items to accomplish ever growing in my quest to have certain goals completed prior to our little "Number 3" arriving in January. The constant desire and struggle for balance....one I'm sure will only grow.
Ahhh.......well, here's to today. To apple pie, afternoon walks, wonderful fall air, getting caught up in a good story for a few hours...and enjoying the sight of my ever expanding waitline.
