I don't pray as much as I should..

But lately, I find myself needing to stop what I'm doing just to be thankful. I am so so thankful. To put to words the way it feels in my chest would be to say I want to drop to my knees and cry at how unbelievably grateful I am for everything I have.

This baby, Luke, this home, this life we have. We are so blessed. Each day I wake to little kicks and fall asleep to little nudges. It's as if I struck some sort of life lottery.

As we draw closer and closer to his due date, I recognize that while it is the start of something new, it is the end of something I will hold close to my heart forever. My first pregnancy. I will miss every bit of this time I've shared with this tiny human who already holds the deepest spot in my heart. Our lives are already so intertwined and I cannot wait to meet him.


  1. What a beautiful post. It is so important to be thankful for the things we have. I'm pregnant for the first time too and it is so nice to experience the kicks and nudges (though sometimes I still think it may be gas!) Congrats on your pregnancy and all the best.

    1. Haha it is sometimes gas isn't it! But he's got a tight space in there now, being 35 weeks, so even the tiniest stretch is felt! Thank you and congratulations on your pregnancy!
