i desperately want to start our family and have little babies, but that is not happening for us in the way we had hoped quite yet. I am trying so hard to be patient, but it is constantly on my mind and it's something I can't seem to escape. The pregnant lady in the grocery store, friends posting ultrasound pictures on facebook and blogs, the young mothers in the mall shopping together and pushing their tiny babies in strollers, and church...don't even get me started on church, all seem to remind me that I am not a part of this exclusive club. The optimist in me wants to keep a smile on my face knowing that one day soon I will join the club, but then there are so many stories of infertility, recurring miscarriages, that sometime make me wonder if I should be expecting the worst. I'm not sure which is better in the end.
But every once in a while I am reminded of how wonderful my life is and how I should just enjoy every second of it right now. Caleb's cousins live in Calgary, and one of them is actually our hometeacher. He came over last week to drop off something for us and came in a chatted for a bit. I was kind of embarassed because it was 6pm in the evening, we were already in our pyjamas, we had our tv tables out and were eating pizza while watching our tv shows.
His wife told me that when he got home that night he said, "I went over and they were in their pj's watching TV and eating pizza. I would give anything to do that right now!" (they have three young children)I didn't feel so embarassed after she told me that!
So here is to sleeping in, tv trays, spontaneous get aways, pizza, pyjamas, shopping together at the mall for hours, snowboarding, tv, movies, and spending time together pretty much every day of the week.
Today, life is good.
