I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Due Date

Today was supposed to be my due date. Surprisingly, it really wasn't bad at all. I remembered it this morning, because when I first found out I was pregnant, Carrie commented that my due date was the same day as a wedding her kids were going to be in. So, since the wedding was today, that reminded me that today was my due date. I really didn't feel like I should have been having a baby today though. I already went through that, several weeks ago, and today just felt like.... well, it just felt like today. Just like any other day. I commented to Andy about it being my due date this morning. I think I was starting to feel a little mopey. He was not sympathetic at all, which was the absolute best thing for me. It was much easier to be a little grumpy with him for a few minutes, then to be mopey all day. So, even though he slightly annoyed me, I am really grateful to him for being "uncaring" about it. The thought stuck around all day, and struck at random moments, but it wasn't a heavy thought, and it didn't weigh me down. God is so faithful.
Today is almost done, and I have mourned my baby very little. I did my mourning at other times. Today I celebrated the children I have with me, and the man I love. I needed to celebrate today. Enough said.

Well...even if it worked out to be the best thing for him to be unsympathetic, I can still be mad at him for it!!!! MEN!
Anyway, I noticed another friend on your blogroll celebrated a special day on the 12th...a wedding anniversary...lots of celebrating going on!
I am glad it was a good day for you!

I am glad you had a pretty good day overall. There are times when I still think about your little Angel in Heaven. I hope you have a great week by the way. Oh, and I would love to get together when you come to town. I am here. I start back to work next Monday, but I am available both this and next weekend (as far as I know) and in the afternoons. I can leave work as early as 3:30. I hope to see you soon. I miss you dearly!
