Please believe that with all of the physical, emotional, and mental, strains that are associated with being 39 weeks pregnant, complaining has become a persistent temptation. However, lest I make matters worse by becoming like the children of Israel, which the bible warns against saying; Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer (1 Cor 10:10), I'll opt to focus my attention on the fact that God is good!
Among other things, God is good because:
#1) With a week until my due date, God has blessed us with just about every thing we need for the new baby!
#2) As I mentioned in this post, I've declared this week to be my nesting week. It commenced on Monday, so this is day 4 and I have already cleaned and organized two "monster" closests and the dresser in my bedroom!
#3) In order to help me nest, Hubby decided to by take over the responsibility of cooking dinner this week! On day 2 of nesting week, He pulled an all-nighter in the kitchen, cooking three big meals that will last us awhile!
#4) Our children's god-parents have offered to take them for the day today so that after my midwife appointment, I can frolic around town and treat myself to some pampering! I'm going to get a manicure, pedicure, and then I'll be off to a hair salon!
5) Finally, just when it seemed as though I might not complete all of my nesting week goals by Saturday, a wonderful sister from our church contacted me saying she wanted to come by Saturday to help me do anything I needed!
