I woke up this morning to a phone call from Andrea, one of my great long-time friends, telling me that our friend, Sarah, will have a c-section today to deliver her daughter, Natalie, at just 32 weeks gestation. As my heart, thoughts and prayers have been with her all morning I look outside to see the sleety snow falling in big flakes and my house seems cold. Mason won't stop crying and Jeremiah won't stop bothering him. My grandma was suppose to fly home from NC today, but has decided to delay her return because of the weather, which is a good idea, but I really miss her and was looking forward to her homecoming. After reviewing a few other blogs I realize that I hardly know some of my friends anymore and today I feel farther away than ever. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's stress, or maybe it's these dang pregnancy hormones that always have a way of taking over my life. Yes, for those of you who don't know already, I am pregnant. Only 5 or 6 weeks, but I already feel deep in the thick of it. We are so happy and excited that it makes me crazy how down in the dumps I feel. This is a beautiful time for our family and I just want to feel as good as I am happy.
