Another tidbit- It's weird that I'm starting take the perspective of the older character in shows as opposed to younger. In this case the mother. It's neat to be experiencing that side of it. My ability to love has definitely expanded since being a mom. Not just for Sarah either. Seeing Ed as a dad makes my love for him stronger. Even on rough mothering days, I am really grateful to be experiencing motherhood. Try it out if you're already not! :) And to those trying... best of luck!
On another subject-
I was really sad on Sunday after getting home from church when I realized that (even though I'm pregnant) I didn't fast. Fasting can still have meaning even if you have to eat. I didn't have a prayer in my heart. I knew it was fast Sunday and didn't do a thing about it. I felt so selfish and ashamed that I didn't think of anything to fast for. I have plenty of things I could have fasted for. Where has my desire gone? I feel a little spiritually depressed. Definitely not something I'm proud to say, but it's true. I wish being good, kind and thoughtful came more natural.
Updates from June to come... Sarah is a chatterbox!!
