It's finally happened...again

Well, it's finally happened again.

Those two pink lines...
that weird full feeling in my belly that never goes away...
the urge to throw up every few minutes...
the hating of all food...
the horribly messy house...

The moments of tears of gratitude...
the moments of intense love and thankfulness...
the vivid memories of doing this before...

The fleeting sadness that Ava will never be the baby of the family like she has been for 5 years...
and then the huge grin that covers my face when I imagine her as a little mommy's helper

The brief pang that comes with the knowledge that our family is changing forever...and then feeling so happy I can hardly contain myself...

The ache in my heart when I think of the huge gap between Ava and this one all because we live in an imperfect world...and the feeling of warmth and content that fills it when I remember how faithful my Heavenly Father is to fulfill His promises

I have read your blog for a while now, but never commented! I just wanted to let you know that you have encouraged me by sharing some of your life here. I am a homeschooling mom from Arkansas (homeschooling for 12 years)and it is so nice to hear that someone else has some of the same struggles I do! I think that too often we moms compare our lives to others and end up with so much discontentment and guilt because we are only seeing the 'perfect' lives of others. Thank you for sharing about homeschooling and upholding the importance of family! Such an encouragement!
Also, I wanted to congratulate you on the new baby! We too are hoping for a 4th, but it's been 6 years now and no baby yet, so I get so excited when I see someone happy and excited about adding to their family!
