As I jot these few words, our little girl is due to appear in less than a month.
This journey that began so unexpectedly is going to culminate in just a few weeks’ time.
Then, another journey will begin.
During these last days of “just us two”, Ben and I are caught between peaceful waiting and anxious expectation. We cannot wait to meet our daughter and, at the same time, we want to cherish these final moments of being ‘newlyweds’. (Though, truth be told, we haven’t really felt like newlyweds since we found out that we were also parents.)
Whatever you find yourself anxiously awaiting these days, may you savor the journey.
For us, there’s a baby loading.
