As someone who's body does apparently not know how to sneeze JUST one time. I would like to take a minute to relish in the joys of pregnancy. Tonight, while sitting on the couch in a sneezing frenzy that I have deemed "Allergies Attacked." I got to experience the lovely effect that comes with that territory. Sneezing while pregnant that is. For those of you who don't know what I am talking about...I will just let your mind wonder for awhile. My first response to this lovely occurrence was..well, this is less then ideal...which then turned into...BRING IT ON!
It is human nature to moan and gripe about things in our life that are less then ideal. For most of us its the little things...pregnancy itself has quiet the list of less then ideal situations or occurrences. How often do we REALLY say to ourselves...well, its a small price to pay or what is complaining about something going to do for me?
Dont get me wrong, I am absolutely just as (if not more) guilty of this as the next person. I however am done complaining about my pregnancy. I have absolutely NOTHING to complain about. I have a beautiful baby girl inside me. We have nothing but opportunities in front of us. No matter what happens we have opportunities in front of us.
I will not take it for granted. I will not whine and moan when I am peeing my pants a little at a time because of my uncontrolable sneezing. I will not whine when I am too big to get off the couch. I will not complain about having to pee every 5 seconds even after I just FINALLY fell asleep. Baby feet in my ribs? Whatever makes you comfortable sweetheart. Burning heartburn? She is going to have beautiful hair like her sister.
*please note that everyone...yes, even me... makes mistakes and I will leave that one up to God and his glorious grace to judge.
My point is...all of that is nothing compared to the gift we have been given. With the help of God , we have created a beautiful human life. A heart beating, practice breathing, thumb sucking, stomach nudging life. What's a little pee compared to that?
Upon this astonishing, amazing, original discovery ;) I realized just how many area's of my life it can be carried to. I have a great marriage. Its not perfect. It has its flaws, but I know I am loved by an amazing man who I wouldn't trade for anything. I am a mother. I am not perfect. I have my flaws, but I get to raise my daughter and witness all the greatness she brings to my life and others on a daily basis. I have a roof over my head. Its not perfect it has flaws, but I have a roof over my head and no threats of losing one (moving doesn't count) anytime soon.
The list could go on and on. So really, what's their to complain about?
