Happy New Year! Gosh, can it really be 2008? It seems like just yesterday I was celebrating 2000… since then I have graduated college, fallen in love, gotten married and am now having a baby! Amazing.
I am 11 weeks today. Yesterday we heard the baby’s heartbeat. So exciting to hear that little heart pumping like galloping horses. Next week I will have an ultrasound to see the little munchkin. I can’t wait!
Right now I am reading one of the best fiction books I have ever read – EVER. It is called Someone Knows My Name. Matthew bought it for me for Christmas. Seriously, go to Amazon right now and buy this book. It is about a woman’s life starting out in Africa and then her journey to America on a slave ship, working on a plantation, etc. Words cannot do it justice, but know that it is a book that will move you emotionally and stick with you for days. I have even been dreaming about it. I am a bit more than half way through it and will surely finish it this weekend.
Matthew is going on a writing retreat this weekend to work on his memoir. Please be praying for him – that the time away brings him clarity and focus and helps him get a significant amount of work done.
