It’s a magical time, this threshold of welcoming a new human into the world.
I keep trying to grasp it … in a few weeks, a baby will be here. I keep silently working it through, trying to help my mind understand it: this young life that is now stretching and moving inside of me will soon be outside of me, a person – a person!!! – that I will get to look at and meet and hold.
It’s too strange and big of a transition for the mind to grasp, really.
And it’s wonderfully mysterious and baffling and exciting.
Like most second time moms, I possess mostly amnesia about what it was like to care for a newborn. But I can recall attempting to get just a few simple things done each day (such as shower, eat something substantial/warm – not just another granola bar – send that one email …) and often failing to get that simple list done, again and again.
Based on that, I’m going to tentatively guess I won’t be blogging prolifically in the next few months. 😉
But, I do have lots of wonderful things lined up for you for the coming months …
Each Wednesday over the next few months, you’ll receive a blog post from me – a favorite post from the archives. Many of these posts now also include new audio with some updated thoughts and commentary.
If you are thinking of joining us for a course or training program in the coming year, be sure to check out our recent email about what’s coming up in 2017 HERE, so you can plan ahead and sign up to get early information on programs you are interested in.
Yes, I will do my best to let you all know when baby is safely arrived – thank you for asking about that and for caring!
And yes, I welcome all prayers and good vibes for labor and this little one’s arrival and early weeks. I’ll take all the positive energies I can get for that!
Last but not least, I want to say thank you for all your comments and reading and togethership with me and others here.
