3 More Weeks
We went to another baby appoinment yesterday and they told me I have to wait three more weeks to find out the gender. To me, three weeks feels like an eternity!! I am starting to feel a little frantic. How will I be ready for a baby in 4 1/2 months? Have I read enough, prayed enough, bought enough, painted enough.....? I am suddenly feeling very overwhelmed!! Why would the Lord trust me with one of his precious sons/daughters? Have Nick and I done all we could do to make our home one where this soul can dwell and thrive? In the midst of all these feelings, there are moments of calmness and surety. It comes each time we pray, each time I see that little baby moving all around The sacred role of parenthood is upon us and we are ready. Maybe we won't know everything, maybe we will spend money on things we don't need or not buy enough. But we have definetly prayed and prayed. We prayed for this child long before we ever "met" him/her. I know that Heavenly Father has been preparing us for longer than we realize.
