Today is a good day. Heck, it's even been a good week! Some of it might be because my doctor is trying a different combination of meds. I'm not complaining if it makes me feel more like myself. And it also might be something that my counselor said earlier this week that has me thinking. More on that another time...
But today I am sitting at my parents' house for a long weekend of doing nothing! They're actually not here for the weekend, though we saw them a bit last night. Paul is off hunting raccoons at camp, my brother is at a high ropes course facilitator training for camp, and I'm sitting at the dining room table watching The West Wing on DVD and doing a bit of work. The agenda for the rest of the weekend: more West Wing, knitting, a couple of books, hiking, grilling and time with some dear friends. I'm mostly hiding out, enjoying the solace.
It's also been a good week because I am SO HAPPY for several friends who have announced pregnancies this week. SO HAPPY for them. These are pregnancies after loss(es), and for any woman who has the blessing of being pregnant again, I praise God. These little ones are so wanted and so loved...even by people who have never met their mamas.
One day I hope to announce a pregnancy, too. I have no idea when that might be, and that's okay. But I have so much HOPE, for my babies-to-be and for these babies who already ARE.
