Last night I had an incredibly vivid dream that I was pregnant. It was so vivid that I didn't sleep on my stomach for the rest of the night, just in case. It has made me ponder the idea all day. When I think long-term, I know that we just don't want kids yet. Eventually, yes. But not yet. But that dream made me wish for it, just a little bit... And when the sweet babies seek me out with their eyes, and a big smile spreads over their face when I smile at them... That makes me excited, too. How much more will my own children be delighted to see me? The kisses and cuddles and all the things I've studied about how to raise/care for children... It's scary and exciting to think about having our own.
But for now, I love our life. I love this season. I love living downtown, riding my bike to work, working at Champa, beginning to lead a house church, our church, riding our bikes to church and the farmer's market, spending lots of quality time with my husband... It's great.
This weekend I am looking forward to meeting little Amelie, to spending time with family and friends, and reading the paper with my husband.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
