First, I was reading a blog a while back and a young couple found out that they were having a precious little one with Down Syndrome. They were devastated and unsure of what route they would take in the near future. The couple decided to continue with the pregnancy and did get to the point where they were extremely excited and looking forward to meeting their little bean. The point to my story...later on in the pregnancy, the husband said to his wife, I would be disappointed if this little one came into the world and didn't have Down Syndrome. Made me smile. <3
Second (I feel I need to number my thoughts, darn teacher in me), I went to therapy at Cocktails and Dreams yesterday. It was a really great session. It's an hour of talking and laughing and deciding on what I can do for myself and my well-being. For the next 2 weeks, I am to work on me time. Doing things with friends, going to get a massage, a pedicure. Deborah said that I need to take at least one day a week where I focus on just me, treating myself with some self lovin'. I think that all of you should do this. It doesn't have to be a whole day, just part of one where you are out with no kids and no husband. All about you! I am going to follow her advice.
Third, I know that people are reading my blog and I'm guessing that some of you are enjoying it as I think you are coming back for more. What I don't know is who exactly is reading about my crazy life. Last night, my sister told me that a teacher she knows is reading my blog and it is helping her deal with some of her fears during her pregnancy. Ange told me that her baby has some physical abnormalities as well as some other medical conditions. When she told me this, it made me feel so great that I am actually helping others and that other women are getting comfort and reassurance from my words. Thank you! Please know that I am also feeling comfort when you share your stories with me...you are helping me with my journey.
Forth, I know that several of you have shared my blog through Facebook as well as have put it on your own blogs. I truly appreciate this, more then you know. I wanted to list a bunch of friends who have been amazing, supportive and so kind throughout this journey. I decided against naming specific people as I will probably leave one person out then feel like crap because I forgot. You know who you are and I love you. This sounded like an academy awards speech....maybe one day I will beat out Kelle Hampton and win the award for best blog. I just need around 20 million more views. :) Maybe I shouldn't have included her name, I probably just added to her views. Darn.
I can be so emotional
Lastly, I dropped my sister off at her friend's house last night. They are headed to Cabo today for a well deserved vacation. She'll be gone for a week, not long but I get all teary saying goodbye . I am such a hormonal freak.
I hope you have a wonderful and beautiful Tuesday. :)
