Pregnant Pause

Come on!  This title is pretty funny!  Considering where I am going with this….

I obviously have my brain somewhere else right now.  I sit down to write every day and I find myself staring out the window, or at pictures, or at the inside of my head where all of my memories are stored.  I think about my daughters, and her daughters, and her soon to be son.   I think about the journey they are starting on.  And starting on a new and different journey of my own, one that has changed after over twenty years of traveling.

Usually my writings take on different aspects, activities, thoughts and musings that humor me or astound me during the day at hand.

But I am well aware I have paused in the midst of all different kinds of  creativity and ponderings to just be excited and joyful in  anticipation.

And my world is full of anticipation.   It surrounds me.

Within a few short weeks of one another some very important people in my life are going to be bringing forth more important people in my life.

My child will have her first child.

My sister will have a child.

My niece will have a child.

My friend will have a child.

And my little Godson is already here, getting a good jump on the others by a few months.

Talk about anticipation!

New life.   Where will they go?  What will they do?  What will they see?  I anticipate their arrival.   I anticipate the glory of the miracle that is each of them.  I anticipate the excitement they will create in their lifetime.

So here I sit….paused.  Unable to stray my thoughts far from these expectations.  I anticipate arrivals.

And lifetimes.

  1. How exciting, the anticipation of new life, especially of your daughter!!! If I was a new person I would be very happy to have you be one of the people who is anticipating my arrival and meeting me. You bring joy and laughter to all those you care about so woo hoo!! Have fun and enjoy ( as I know you will). May God bless your new grand child. I know you will have fun hugging and loving him. Bless you my friend. Irish Eyes are smiling on you now:)


    • Thanks Mary! You can’t beat Irish eyes smiling on you to make you feel safe. Thanks for the nice words. Baby boy may get tired of some of the hugging. Thank you so much for the nice words, I hope I can make him (and the rest) that happy! 🙂
