Today has been a bittersweet day. It's been a fabulous day but yet, I still feel like something (or someone) is missing. I have to say that it was eventful, complete with Geoff helping me with Sunday School this morning where we made little hand print poems with the kids (and yet another Sunday of ME having "practice" changing dirty diapers"... augh....!!!) and then afterwards we had dinner at our house for my mom. We haven't had everyone over since last Labor Day. This time, we had all the "local" family here(except Chris who worked all night), everything was great and it was sooooo nice having everyone here. Sara gave me the sweetest "Mother and Daughter" necklace. I also wore my necklace that Geoff gave me of the Chinese symbols for Mother and Daughter. I feel like I am on the edge of having two daughters as I sit here and type my post. It's a long time dream of mine AND Sara, who awaits a sister. She is looking forward to Lexi so much too. I can't help but think that by this time next year, I should be a mother for the 2nd time and God willing, a Grandmother too.
Everyone was only gone about 15 minutes when I got a call from my advisor. FINALLY, some good news!!! He actually listened to me for a change and things just got easier for me to complete the dissertation. I have a lot of work to do the next few days but I'm up for it. I am soooooo...... ready to get this part of my life over!! It's one step closer to being ready for Lexi. Hopefully by next Mother's Day we'll be settling in nicely with little Lexi.
And one more thing, I got the nicest card from Geoff, the cats and the pups, and our sweet Lexi (who is by far a smart little girl to send a Mother's Day wish to me as I wait for her!... I have the dearest, sweetest husband ever!!) Life is GOOD!
