spring forth

spring 2011

i took this photo {in my back yard} just a couple days ago... and already, this tree looks drastically different... about twice as full as what you see here. i love the burst of spring growth we get each year. it does my heart and soul such good. and this year, spring comes with a whole new meaning, for new birth is not just in the greenery around me, but in my home as well. if baby comes on the due date, it will be just a couple days before spring is officially over and is transitioning into summer. here's to hoping that baby-b "springs" forth as rapidly as the trees have been... to hoping it's not a long and tiring labor. but even if it is, what joy is on the other side. i anxiously await... more than any spring i have ever waited for or ever will wait for.

what are you waiting for right now?

I understand why you are anxiously awaiting baby-b's birth. I, though, am trying to live in the moment more instead of always looking ahead or forward to something bigger, more special, more exciting. It's hard, though.

I hope your labor is short and sweet, too.

I am waiting for you to tell us that you have that beautiful little one. We are also trying to be patient as we wait for school to be over. I miss my oldest daughter so much when she is gone and I can't wait to have her with me and the other girls again.
Happy Mother's Day!

You have done very well in the waiting department and won't have much longer. I hope you save your blog in a book form, to remember this time. Prayers for you and Baby-B. xo Jenny
