Life is grand!
The weather is fabulous... 85 degrees and sunny most days. Of course, we could use a little rain but I just love
the sunshine so I'm not complaining. We are preparing for a baby who is a gracious gift of the Lord and truly a miracle in our lives! We have blessings upon blessings from the Lord... from new furniture to garage sales full of exactly the baby things we need and have asked the Lord to provide. I feel terrific! I do always tend to feel better pregnant than not and having this precious baby with all his kicks, hiccups and squirms inside of me has carried with it an extra measure of grace in my happiness and physical wellness.
Life is truly grand! But, there is one thing that is just the cherry on top of the sundae. THE POOL!!!! I dearly love the pool and make good use of it every summer. This summer I was a little bit sad that I would miss part of my summer sun and swim time since little Noah is due the first of August. That meant I wouldn't be able to swim in August. But, again, the Lord blessed me tremendously because our pool opened a full month early this year and our weather has been so nice and warm that we have been swimming several times in the last two weeks. Yesterday was no exception. Off to the pool we went and it was bliss! Pure bliss! The water was refreshing, the sun was glorious and the people were few and far between. Does it get any better than this? No way!
So, I'll be able to spend my full three months enjoying the pool, acquiring a healthy tan... which will look great in my hospital pictures!... and exercising in the pool in preparation for labor and delivery. And, I'll be enjoying every minute of it!!
One more thing I found that is particularly relevant to my current poolside enjoyment was this cute cartoon. It was so funny that I just had to share it. My two favorite things... the pool and books! You probably already know this about me, but when it comes to libraries and pools, I spend all my time in the deep end.
