Getting Started...And An Ending
I am having such difficulty with my second blog entry. My issue is not knowing where to begin...I'm a blabbermouth...very wordy...extremely talkative. There is so much to say! Do I talk about my pregnancies, my upbringing, what I'm making for dinner, the ups and downs of marriage, my current sore throat??? What is weighing most heavily on my mind right now is the fact that NJ is 17 months old, and my husband just had a "V" yesterday. I can't believe I will never be pregnant again! Never experience the overwhelming joy of feeling my baby kick inside me...never...well, I won't dwell on it. Instead, I am savoring every moment with my 17-month-old. Right now, he's watching a "Miss Pattycake" DVD in awe. His favorite song is "10 Men" and he loves to sing along with the chorus "Thank you, thank you Jesus" and do the motions with it. He is curious about everything. I love to just sit and watch him think, learn, and explore. His hair is so silky...every time I kiss his head, I think, "I will never be a mom to a baby this age again!!" It makes my heart ache, but it also challenges me to put my best effort into my kids, not just "getting through the day," but making it a great day for loving and learning. This is easier said than done, however! I love that God's Word says His mercies are new every morning.
