|My weird friends. ;)|
We hit up the Sandwich Spot on our way back to town. Number 12 is my absolute favorite. We also stopped at the outlets in Cabazon. I got a couple of comfy shirts at Cabi (fit for a growing belly) and a new wallet from Kate Spade. It's just black and basic but I was due for a new one.
Normally I come up with some list of resolutions for the new year. But honestly, all I want to do this year is grow a healthy baby (or two). I guess if I had to choose a word for this year it would be "trust." It's funny because all along I thought that once I was pregnant my worries would be fewer. That is certainly not the case! I'm sad to say I'm more anxious now than ever. Anxious about my next blood test, anxious to hear the heart beat, anxious to see that the baby is healthy etc. I'm realizing there will never be a time in my life when there isn't something to be worried about. That's why it's so important for me to focus on each day at a time and to just trust God!
I'm constantly battling my fearful thoughts and playing out "what ifs" in my head. A verse from the sermon I went to this weekend says, "...and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." 2 Cor 10:5 One of my goals this year is to recognize my negative thinking and to stop it immediately by going to Christ in prayer. Or as Daniel Tiger says, " If something seems bad, turn it around and find something good!" Ha ha gotta love Blair's kiddie shows.
So, that's what you can be praying for for me. That I keep my trust in the Lord and for a healthy baby(ies) obviously! And thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers thus far! You guys bless me so much!
