Morning Walks, Be Bands and Forgiveness - What I Learned This Week

 Even though my brain does not seem to be hitting on all cylinders, I learned just a few things this past week

  • Putting my son in Tae Kwon Do finally (as he reminds me) was a great move.  He asks to go every single day and loves his time there.  I can see it on his face how much fun he is having. 

  •  Taking a walk in the cool morning air helps morning sickness to subside for awhile.  So do potato chips.  

  • Having one pair of maternity jeans hiding in the back of your closet that did not sell at a consignment sale is a big score!  Especially on Sunday morning when you are trying to find something to wear to church and NOTHING else fits around your waist anymore.  

  • Going to a church that dresses casually is a blessing.  

By the way, I found these at Target - Be Bands.  I did not have them with my other pregnancies and I have to say that I love them.  They really do help this weird transition of "before maternity clothes but can't fit into your regular clothes."  I paid for these, nobody asked me to tell you how awesome they are, I just want to share my opinion.

  • It doesn't matter how much you want someone to change or see the light in a situation.  They have to want it.  Anger and fear can literally consume a heart that does not belong to God.  And even one that does has a hard time dealing with those emotions in a healthy way.   So, I just pray for changed hearts.  I pray for the others involved - that their hearts be protected through the wreckage of unforgiveness and retribution.     I pray that I love and not judge.  What else can a friend do?

Wow, that is a lot of lessons! And those be bands, wow, there are so many cool new things since I was pregnant.

As for the last one, that is hard. Hang in there!

And yeah, as my midwife said, when you have m/s, whatever makes you feel better, eat it! Long live the potato chip!

So glad your son is loving Tae Kwon Do! My 5 yr old assured me he would LOVE soccer but then he changed his mind. Right in the middle of a game. On the field. Grrrrr. And those registration fees are not cheap!

P.S. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
