Anyway, I find myself in a very covetous mood today. I'm jealous of all those around the country who are staring out their windows at a winter wonderland. Why isn't it enough that we, in SOUTH LOUISIANA, received snow in early December? Why can't I just be thankful for that and move on? Because we always want what we can't have! I'm also quite jealous of those in Maryland who have spent many minutes and hours holding my nephew! I see pictures, and I just want to be there too! HOWEVER, just this past week I booked a flight to Maryland to meet (and hold for hours!) baby CJ. I'll leave New Orleans on March 20 and spend the weekend with family...what a fun birthday present...thanks, Mom and Dad! And then the final point of jealousy...for today...why am I still feeling sick when (as of today!) the first trimester is over?! So many other women I've talked to (in an attempt to comfort me) have told me their stories of when their sickness ended...11 weeks and 2 days, 12 weeks on the money, etc. I mean, I know it could be much worse...however, I just want some relief. Okay--enough complaining for today.
Sorry this entry wasn't more uplifting and inspiring. Some days are just better than others, you know?! How thankful I am that the Lord's mercies are new EVERY morning! I pray His blessings and mercies on all of you today!
