Confession. I don’t recall the last time I was in the Christmas Spirit…I didn’t want to wake up on Christmas morning only concerned about which foods to eat, what outfit to wear, and whether or not I purchased all the right presents.
Although I could still feel the contractions and feel the baby pressing down against my back, it was still much better.
At one point during a contraction, I gripped the insides of Evan’s arms so tightly that I thought I penetrated his skin with the grip of my nails.
I thought laying down was a difficult position to be in when enduring a contraction, but doing so in a moving car proved much more trying
During my finals period of my Freshman year in college, for lack of better words, I felt totally and utterly...empty. I don’t know if you’ve ever felt it or experienced it. It’s almost like the nostalgia of childhood comes to an end and that inner joy and peace that you once felt, simply for just “being,” dissipates.

This is probably the hardest for me and the most undervalued lesson learned. Whenever there is a disagreement, I’m so prone to run to “fixing it”—subtly telling myself that I am more capable than God and any wisdom/ guidance that He can grant. My best advice is to first run to God in prayer and WAIT for Him to lead/guide you on what your next step should be.
