I have not been as good at blogging as I want to be lately. Tonight I am feeling especially grateful though and I wanted to make sure not to forget it. With the baby coming we have been anxious to figure out what exactly our lives will be like. Will we be able sell our house before June? If so, where will we live? Will Tim be able to find a good job before then? Will I have to go back to work afterwards? It has been a little scary not knowing what to expect with all these big changes that could be happening. In the last year or so we have wondered a few times why things can't just work out easily. I think we have a learned a lot from our experiences though. I feel like we have learned to have more patience, see our blessings more clearly, and have faith that everything will work out.

A few days ago I was feeling a little nervous/down about all the unknowns. I was saying to Tim how nice it would be if everything could just work out the way we wanted. He said something to me that really helped me to remember what is important. He said that of all the things that could be happening how we want, we have the most important thing going so well. We have a baby coming into our family that has been perfectly healthy throughout the whole pregnancy, and has been growing exactly how he should. We may not have a big house, we may not be sure exactly what we will be doing 3 months from now, but we know that we have this amazing little guy coming into our family. What could be better than that?

I can't even explain how in love I am with this little boy already. And I love how much Tim loves him already too. I am grateful to have a husband that is going to be such an amazing dad. We can't wait to meet him and see him grow. He is constantly moving now and I love it. He is so active, I'm sure we are going to have our hands full with him :) Every time he moves I am reminded of how lucky we are and how excited I am to be his mother. I already know how special he is and how happy he already makes me. I am so grateful for our growing family. I have the best husband and the best baby on the way. I love them :)

I know that things may not always happen just the way we want, and things may take more work and patience than we expected, but that's okay. Everything will work out and everything will happen in its own time. I feel so grateful and comforted to know that our Heavenly Father knows us, he knows our needs, he knows how to teach us and he loves us and wants us to be happy. He will never leave us alone and is always there to help through. He has a plan for us, even when we don't know what it is yet. We have so many things to be grateful for and I am excited to see all of things He has in store for us.
