Discussions Only We Know
After eighteen months of prayer and trying, Husband and I can finally announce that we are expecting an addition to our family in October 2015. We are beyond excited to start this new journey. Some people have no problems getting pregnant. But that's not the story for all. Having been on the side of trying month after month and seeing friends and family announcing their good news, I know that there is a good chance that someone may be reading this that is in the same place I've been. There are a lot of stars that have to align for this miracle to occur no matter how quick/easy or long/hard the process may seem. Don't give up hope. God is good, all the time--even when the answer is "no" or "not right now." We still have many weeks to go, but I am trying to be anxious for nothing, but take everything to God in prayer with thanksgiving so that His peace which passes all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. I'm so thankful that God led Husband and I to each other because there's no one else I'd rather be going on this journey with.
That being said...will this affect my blog? Well...Initially I'd say "of course not!" But it's already started to affect me. For one, I've been SO TIRED! It has not been uncommon for me to sleep 11-13 hours at a time within the last twelve weeks. So that's not really conducive to reading. I'll pick up a book, and in minutes I'm passed out. Plus, I've mentioned the reading slump that I've been in over the last three months, and now maybe it'll make a little bit more sense why. I can't stay awake, and while I'm slightly more emotional, I think I'm more irritable than prone to tears. This leaks into my reading, too, making the little things become more annoying, bigger things.
Ideally, I'll get back on track. Now that I'm pretty much out of the first trimester, I hope to get some energy back soon. I don't foresee Somewhere Only We Know suffering too much. I might be more accepting of needing a break every now and then in the future, but I've been trying to pay attention to that in order to avoid burn out for a while now.
I know I posted this announcement in the form of a Discussion Only We Know post, but I don't guess there's much to discuss as I don't really have any questions for you guys. I'm just really excited to share this news with you all!
