So, that story I told you about the chicken that laid an egg on my lap on Mother’s Day?
Well, turns out it was foreshadowing after all! I thought that term was only used in novels and movies. Apparently not. The egg was a sign of things to come! We are 10 weeks pregnant, and found out a few weeks ago. But obviously, we wanted to share the new in person with the parentals and other family and friends.
We’ve been married for 5 years, this coming August, and we wanted to wait a bit to start a family to enjoy each other and do some traveling. That was the goal anyways. Life has a way of changing our plans though. So here we are pregnant, and not “traveled.” We’re down to the wire, I know, but we’re going. And the time is right. It’s far from easy (money, or lack-there of, selling the house, moving our stuff, preparing for a garage sale, trying to pay off debt, etc.), but we’re living by faith and letting the Lord direct our steps. Things seem to be falling into place with a little elbow grease, persistence, and “bigger-picture” vision.
This exciting news is one of the best things I’ve experienced, aside from the joy of our wedding day. We’re so happy to be taking steps into this phase of our life. Up until now, I would’ve told any one “I’ll be waiting as long as possible before we have a little one.” With the news that we are pregnant now, I’ve never felt more fulfilled, nor the time more right.
