Today my parents went to pick up a new hearing aid and have the old ones adjusted. They have been going to this particular audiologist for many years. She had a baby a little over a year ago and is pregnant again. This time, she is carrying twins. She said it was completely unexpected and doesn’t run in their families. She laughed – a little – about how she is growing twice as fast as she did in her first pregnancy. In the afternoon I went to my hairdresser. She is also pregnant and will be delivering in about 6 weeks. She told me about how she gave up coffee at the very beginning as caffeine is not supposed to be good for the baby. She talked about her regular doctor’s appointments and the things she is doing to take good care of her and the daughter she is carrying. She told me about her Christmas with her nephews and how wonderful it will be next year for her and her husband to experience it with their daughter. I thought about the 3 little humans that these women are carrying and how loving it is to be an expectant mom.
I Found God today in expectant moms.
