Does that tree look like a face to you?
I will not lie. This is not where we expected to be, here and now. But who does? Life would be so creepy,boring and pointless if it all just went as planned. There is no formula. There are no guarantees... other than that pesky mortality rate. So, that's a struggle I'm still struggling with.
I can honestly say, that never, ever have I felt more loved, more provided for, and with more to look forward to.
We are on the verge of a big decision. One we would prefer to put off until we felt more "grown up". But we've given our word, and so... we will be be praying extra hard for the next two days. The time is now, and we must give our word.
And... I can't even see a picture of a baby without getting all squashy and want-y. Yet another thing I never thought would happen. I expected logic to prevail. But in this realm, logic tucked its tail and hid under the bed long ago. I am looking at 4 months of insurance, anyone know a way to healthily gestate a baby in that amount of time? According to my research, I would need to become a hyena, a chinchilla or a tiger. hmmm....
We have been blessed with my job going full-time for the time being. Profuse apologies for my absence. When not working, I am trying to soak up all of the Brady and Edward that I can.
I hope that all who read this are doing well, and enjoying all the shameless beauty of Spring (allergies be damned!).
We really are bursting at the seams. And I pray for the same for you and yours.
PS- I can't find the best part of this quote, but this is still good: "A comfortable grape, a well watered, well fertilized grape grows into an easy ingredient of a lousy wine." - Jim Barrett, Bottle Shock. Highly recommend the movie if you want to feel good about people and their crazy dreams and learn a little bit about wine.
