I thought I’d try to get back into blogging while I still can. I’m now 37 weeks pregnant, which is called full-term, and the baby could be born any time now (though they say most first babies don’t arrive early). So here are some of the things I am thankful for this week:
Making it to full-term
Whenever anything seemed abnormal in our pregnancy I got worried about the baby’s safety. I’m so glad that we’ve reached full-term now and the baby can be born with minimal complications. Now it’s just a waiting game!
Skills to make gifts
We went to a one year old’s birthday party on the weekend and I made her some crochet shoes (oops, I should have taken a picture). I have often loved receiving handmade gifts from people and I love being able to do the same. At the moment, it’s also easier for me to make a gift than walk around the shops trying to find something, so that’s a double win there. I’m thankful for the brain that God gave me to be able to learn skills such as crochet, and hands with the ability to do such things.
This week I’ve had swollen feet, a sore back, tired limbs and J has been wonderful to me through it all. He massaged my feet and back, let me sit when I needed to and took over things such as the dishes so I could rest. As my capacity to do things has decreased J has stepped up, even at a time when he’s gearing up to start college in less than two weeks and has a lot of work to do before that. I’m so thankful for his love and care for me, now more than ever.
What are you thankful for this week?
