Oh me, oh my! What a week.  Life is just full of surprises sometimes isn’t it? Once I feel like I’ve got it all figured out, it throws me a curve ball and makes me realize I’m not in control after all. DANG, I like feeling in control. The last two years have been a whirlwind of change in my life….moving to Encinitas, discovering I have Celiac’s disease, getting married to the love of my life, finding out SURPRISE… I am pregnant, and now, facing some pretty huge changes at work.  Work is the place I spend the majority of my time, and the people here are like family to me.  Recently loosing a few people  who I have worked beside for years…people I love and respect, has been hard, to say the least.   And I think it rocked me a little more than I thought it would.  But what can I say, I am a “feeler” (thanks mom!).   Sometimes, in the midst of change, its hard to see the good in a situation.  But I have to trust that God has his hand in all of this, and that something better is in store for all of us.  So, I am keeping faith in that and staying hopeful for the future.  Besides, this change might mean a bigger, better opportunity for Sam and I and our growing family.  We will see! ( I know i’m not being very descript here, but this is all so fresh and up in the air still).

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

I choose hope over fear.

In other news…the baby bump has grown a lot this week!  I’ll have an update on that soon!  But I am listening to the pitter patter of rain outside right now and my husband, a cozy fire, and our last episode of Breaking Bad are waiting for me downstairs! So i’m signing off :)

    i smiled when you said that you’re a “feeler”… my mom has called me that for most of my life! ;) It can be SO easy to choose fear, but I know that by choosing hope, God will bring blessings. I pray that you find a sense of peace this week!

    I hear you on that whole “change” thing. It’s amazing how quickly things happen. Especially when you meet “the one” and start going through the process of building a life togteher…

    Can’t wait to see that bump in a couple of weeks!!!
