I’m 30 weeks pregnant! I imagine him raising his arms and legs, testing them out and discovering what he else he can already do. Some days I wake up to his little kicks and say a little prayer of thanks to the Lord. Indeed, pregnancy really is a training for motherhood. This little baby depends on me for everything he needs, he eats what I eat, drinks what I drink, listens to the same songs I listen to. It will be much of the same thing for a number of years until he’ll be able to fend for himself.
I then wonder how people can still say that there is no Creator after witnessing this marvel of life but I digress. In any case, I am writing again because I have some time on my hands. After my Tuesday check-up, my OB told me that I was having contractions. Baby, it seems is quite excited to see the world. I have 7 weeks to go til he reaches full term so that I have been put on two weeks of bed rest. To be honest about it, I welcome this respite from work. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job I really do. Sometimes though it’s hard to stay optimistic when faced with clients who don’t seem to want to help themselves. I’m hoping that the 2 weeks away from court will energize me, invigorate me and refresh my frustrated soul. I pray to the Lord for guidance that I may do my job well and that in so doing I would be contributing to the greater good. As defender of the accused, I pray that justice may be done, that the innocent be freed and the guilty punished.
As for the next twelve days, I have a lot of planning to do. This time, I brought my printer home. I’m giving myself til tomorrow to finish any work related tasks. Come Saturday, I will start working on the things I have postponed since life got busy.
P.s. I worry too about my GDM (it really sucks having to have insulin twice a day and to monitor my blood sugar before/after every meal but I lift this up to the Lord. I thank Him for a loving and supportive husband who seems to know how to assuage my fears. All things work out toward the good. Thank you Lord.
