The Blessing Box

Blessing Box via EL:

1.  My sweet baby - I can't believe that before this school year is over I will have a baby to hold.  To me, that is crazy.  I still haven't wrapped my mind around that yet.

2.  My sweet husband - He cooks, he cleans the dishes, he helps me do the laundry, he vacuums...he really does it all while I sleep my life away.  He doesn't complain and whenever I say, "I'm sorry I'm the worst wife of all time" he assures me I am not.  He tells me it's ok because I'm pregnant and I'm busy building a baby.

3.  Only working part time - Although Jonathan and I don't have as much "fun" money as we once did it's been so worth it.  I don't think I could handle the first trimester working all day.  Knowing that Jonathan will be an assistant principle soon helps too because then he'll get a huge pay raise!  Who doesn't love a huge pay raise?!  Also, we'll get a pay raise when he graduates with his masters in may in the form of NOT having to pay his tuition anymore!  So, all in all working part time is worth the small sacrifice of making less money this year.

4.  Being the youngest - I love being the youngest in my family. (Jonathan is the baby too)  Sometimes I feel like EVERYONE is in my business but MOST of the time I just feel really loved.  I love that our baby will have so much love and support.  I also love that I know which baby stuff I need and what I can do without because practically everyone in my family is a parent.  I also love being the first in line for items being passed down.  Whatever people give me means I don't have to register for it.  Not having to register for it means I'll for sure get most of the things that I do register for.

I don't think I'll ever understand why God gives Jonathan and I so much when I feel we are so undeserving.
