Today I went and picked up the disc of pictures from Cherissa. I uploaded them to my computer right away and was so excited to see them. I loved every one of them! Then I saw one that just displayed everything I was feeling.
Being preganant is different then every feeling in the world. Every movement from the little guy inside brings a smile to my face. I love his wiggling and twisting. I love imagining how he's trying to get comfortable in such a small space. But more then that, I love the feeling of knowing how much of a miracle this is that I get to be a part of.
Rissa's pic shows that. I am so unworthy of getting to be part of God's story involving my Roman. I had to stop and praise Him for allowing this to happen in my life. I find myself so often focusing on the negative and on the yuck and "poor me" things in my life. Even today being 38 1/2 weeks pregnant, longing to get the labor process going, I saw that pic and realized this is a day and time to cherish. Never again will I be able to feel the little guy move inside me. Never again will he be so close to me.
I just love being pregnant. I love being a part of God's story like this.
I'll put up more pics on the next post!
