I am now 4 days away from my due date and if you would have asked me a week ago if I would still be pregnant at this point in time I would have said no. I'm pretty surprised our little one has stayed put for so long but I guess he/she is comfy. Oh well, I'm learning even now how important patience will be from this point on and that the schedule and life of this little one will never be under my control, ever.
Jon and I have started reading some parenting books lately and the reality of this whole journey has slowly been sinking in. I've been thinking about everything from labor and delivery to dealing with the challenges of a teenager, a task my current job has prepared me for more than I ever imagined. It is easy to feel weighed down by the enormity of the responsibility but as I have been praying over this precious child I can't help but feel excited to raise this little one up in the Lord. What a privilege. I could write more but I can barely sort through all of the thoughts and emotions I have going on right now. I just can't wait to hold this child in my arms! Well to keep me from rambling I'm gonna close this out. Unless our baby chooses to stay past his/her due date I think my next post will be an announcement of the birth of this little one...anyone want to guess on a birth day?
