4th of July [[Memories]]

Yesterday was a day full of memories for our family.
Good & Bad.
The good...?
Water Balloon Fights!

Such a sweet sign of summer.
Freckles, Sunshine & Love.
Swimming with Grandpas.
Sporting our Red, White & Blue.
And a sweet lunch with Granny who turns 94 on July 17th.
Wonder where we got Mabel's middle name, Audrine?
It's Granny's middle name! How special.
The bad?
A major pregnant breakdown of crying all day.
Too hot. Too swollen.
Felt lonely. Felt sad. Felt scared. Felt overwhelmed.
Oh, && hated my husband for a bit.

But we're all better here today.
It's a new day and the Lord is good.
Thankful that He has me in His hand.
We're in the final stretch. I can do this!

I had a major pregnant breakdown yesterday too - maybe it's something about being miserable (even though it's for a good reason) on a holiday. I've been on bedrest for 6 weeks and yesterday I was just fed up - tired of backaches,tired of being in bed, tired of being needy, tired of reading, watching tv and doing nothing. And I REALLY wanted to go outside and enjoy the holiday.

Instead, I put on some good worship music, studied the Scriptures, and reminded myself that this is all just temporary and soon I will have a precious baby boy who is worth all the aches and pains and inconvenience.

Hang in there - only a couple weeks left for you.
