Josiah went to school. Kito Ben came to pick him up. I wasn't much in the mood for getting out. The weather is pretty. It is a bit breezy and very light showers. feels more like a drizzle. I love listening to my wind chime. I want to hurry and finish the one We are making for Elijah. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

I got a bit side tracked because I ended up having to go out, to pick up Josiah and take him to school because they were involved in a little fender bender at an intersection right around the block. THANK GOD it was not serious at all no dents on the car or anything. I asked Josiah what happened and he said "car driving and bump". I asked him if he got scared and he said, "nope".
We went to school and he ran into the play area to play with his friends. As I was walking toward the front door he ran to me and said, "mommy" as he raised his arms for me to carry him. I thought for sure we were going to have tears but as soon as I started kissing and kissing his neck he got embarrassed and said, "go mommy, go now, bye!" Silly boy :)

I got home and Steve went to the grocery store. I took a snooze while he was out. He made me some waffles when he got back. It is now 11:30 and I just got out of the shower. I have to go get Josiah at 12:00. For some reason I just can't seem to get enough rest. I keep feeling like I'm tired or sleepy. So I'm looking forward to "having to put Josiah down for his nap" hee! hee! hee!

We have bible study tonight. The ladies at church put together a meal thing, where some one makes a meal for us a few times a week! WHAT A BLESSING THAT HAS BEEN!!
So today we are having beef & cheese enchiladas with rice. YUMMY!!!

maybe more later :) thinking of a lot today... Baby Eva's mom, Asher & Issac's mom, Joshua's mom & Baby Alex's mom Baby Jacobs mom and so very many other mommy's who have to be so brave and strong and carry on. Can't help but ponder on how God's perfect will has brought us all together. I feel like I have a new family circle. I pray for each of these families constantly. YOU ALL HAVE BEEN SUCH A SUPPORT & INSPIRATION TO ME on this journey that we have recently embarked.

The doctor told me yesterday that I am now 7 months. WOW 2 more months. 8 weeks sounds so scary because of the unknown. how much time will we be given? So many thoughts... I hope we get to hear him cry. I want to give him a Binky or as Josiah calls his "monie". I really hope very desperately that we are given as many days as possible!! I know I will never be READY to let go. But i want AS VERY MANY DAYS AS POSSIBLE! but I will cherish every second I am given.


  1. Still praying - for rest for you, for time with that precious, perfect baby boy, for your family in all that is going on.

  2. Hi Marie, I just found your blog & read through your previous posts. You have amazing faith & I wanted to let you know that you are all in my prayers. I pray the Lord gives you the strength, hope, peace, guidance, & comfort as you continue on this journey. God bless.
    Hugs & prayers,

  3. Still praying for your sweet family! Thank you for thinking of and praying for our family as well. I am glad you are allowing yourself to rest. This is not an easy journey and it is downright exhausting at times. It is so evident that you are such a wonderful mommy! I can truly see why God chose you to be the mom of your beautiful children. He has trusted you with amazing gifts and you are exhibiting his grace beautifully! I am so blessed to "know" you! I love you and am praying for you friend!


  4. Stopping by to let you know I continue to pray for you and your family as you wait to meet Elijah. I am especially praying for sweet time with this little gift once he is born. May the Lords peace and joy be yours in the days ahead.

    Love, Laurie in Ca.
