Waiting

When I was pregnant with Natalie there was a girl in my ward that had been trying to get pregnant for a long time. She was very bitter about it, and made it so that anyone that DID get pregnant would feel so uncomfortable around her, and almost guilty for being pregnant! I vowed that if I was in that situation I would NEVER be that way.

Fast forward five years and now it's my turn on the other side. As I see woman after woman, friend after friend announce their pregnancy I have kept my smile. I am truly so happy for them, all of them, and there are MANY, so many it's crazy. But, I am truly happy for them. I know that my time will come, and that even though I wish my time would have been 6 months ago, that if I am patient, one day, we will be blessed with that little spirit that I know has been waiting to join our family.

Until then I sew, and sew and sew and sew, lots of precious baby things to share with all these expectant mothers. And maybe I squirrel away a few precious baby things for us too, just in case.

I know your feelings. We went through over 3 years of not being able to get pregnant. It's easy to say now that the Lord has a reason for all that he blesses us with. We really thought Jake might be the only child--SURPRISE, 2 more babies that we couldn't be happier to have. (Even if they came sooner thatn in our plans.) You will be in my prayers.

oh Shannon, I know how you feel- me with the 5 kiddos. I desperately wanted another and just knew one was supposed to come and I was so impatient. I prayed every single day that I would either hurry up and have one, be patient until one came or be at peace if we were supposed to be done. When I FINALLY stopped stressing little Camden came. It WILL happen, I know it!

The baby things you have been sewing are beautiful! Sometimes it takes a long time between children. But when your little one does come they will have such cute baby things waiting for them!
