Thanks Giving {72}

April 26, 2013

For those of you who were hoping to see a precious newborn and family photo pop up today, I must disappoint you. Let me tell you, you are NOT the only one! This waiting is near unbearable! Somehow it seems like every person I talk to tells me how their baby was three days early. Well good for you (angry sarcasm should be obvious, right?)! So, even though I haven’t been busy at the hospital, I have been busy trying not to get angry at Jane. It’s not her fault, after all. She has just as much right to be angry with me for not getting her out of there.

Instead of getting frustrated, today I am trying to focus on being thankful for these last few days (please let it just be hours!) of time with Jane all to myself. Pretty soon I won’t have all those sweet little wiggles all to myself. I’ll have to share her with the world. I’m thankful that she is still healthy and seems to be happy in there. I’m also thankful that all this anxious waiting is making Timmy nervous, he could stand a little more anxiety in his life haha.

In an effort to get the labor process started I’ve been going on walks. I am thankful for this beautiful city that I live in. So many of the streets are lined with flowering trees and traffic islands blooming tulips and daffodils. Even the sporadic grassy squares along the sidewalk are sprouting violets and muscari. The sun has been shining, the temperature has been perfect for walking. I am so thankful that I can enjoy the spring glory!

I am thankful for all the calls and text messages from family, just checking in to see how we’re doing. I’m sorry there hasn’t been any news! Timmy and I appreciate all the support and encouragement!

I am thankful for Timmy, and his heroics on Monday night. There is a loud car that occasionally parks outside our house in the middle of the night and idles. The girl two doors down goes out and smokes (nothing illegal, I’m sure…) with her boyfriend and then he leaves. Monday night Timmy and I were both just annoyed enough to do something about it. In the past, Timmy was very hesitant to get into any confrontation. This time, however, he went right out there, knocked on the window and gave them the what-for. Okay, he actually asked politely if they’d turn the car off, and blamed his pregnant wife for the trouble. But that is a big step for him! And I don’t mind taking the blame if it means they’ll turn the car off from now on. Thank you Timmy!

I am thankful for all the sweet people I meet while out and about. So many strangers have complimented me and encouraged me while I’ve been running errands. From kind old ladies to awkward middle aged men to moms of all ages. People are so nice! I’m thankful for the encouragement and kindness!

Finally, I am thankful that very soon I will get to hold my sweet baby girl in my arms! We can’t wait to meet her!

What are you thankful for this week?
