busy bee

Monday, June 21, 2010

i know it's been a while since I did a new post! We had so much fun with O and her family Saturday at our pool! It it so nice to have some friends to share it with - sometimes it feels like we don't have alot of friends but I'll take quality over quantity any day in the friendship dept.

We spent yesterday with Mr. A's family and had alot of fun with them. Neither of his brothers are married so we definitely don't feel left behind when we hang out all together- even though I think they will be psyched WHEN we tell them we're expecting (TBD). It was a very nice Father's Day. I got Mr. A a card and I think he appreciated it. Hope next year's is from our baby...

Today was super busy at work,and then I had a client at the pregnancy center who I hadn't seen for months. She is almost 8 months preg now, but her life is so tumultuous she wanted to come in just to talk. Please pray for her with me that God would reveal Himself and how much He loves her very soon. She wondered to me how is she supposed to have faith when everything she prays for turns out the opposite... Couldn't even begin to compare my situation to hers but I did speak from my heart and tell her I know the feeling of abandonmemt that comes with "unanswered" prayers, and that led to a pretty decent spiritual discussion. I don't think she is quite ready to turn her life over to God, but I hope something we talked about will stick with her. But please pray that God gives her a surprise visit sometime soon- at this point she needs some proof- haven't we all been there?

Then I had to drive up to my office tonight for early meetings tomorrow, so my inlaws let me stay with them! It has been a long day, but it feels cathartic to write it all out. Haven't been too good at keeping up the past few days but you are all in my prayers! Will catch up tomorrow afternoon when I'm home from my office and can catch my breath! Night!

That's so wonderful that you can be a source of support for someone else.

Glad you had fun with the in-laws. And isn't it nice that they aren't married and there isn't the added pressure that comes with hanging out with married couples who could announce a pregnancy at any time? :)

Wow, you've been busy! It's wonderful that you are offering this woman support. You are an amazing person. I wish I had your patience and strength. I admire you so much for being able to work with women like this client all while battling infertility. You truly are an inspiration.

So nice to hear from you. I am glad everything is going well and you are busy as a bee! Makes the "wait time" go by much more smoothly.

I'm so happy you were there for her. I suspect you were more helpful than you realize.
