Due Day

Well, March 16th has come and almost gone (for us anyways) and still no baby. We have heard nothing at all. No news good or bad. So we are STILL waiting. The anticipation is crazy! We rented No Country for Old Men tonight and are about to watch it so that we can just take our minds off things for a while. Maybe it will work. While waiting this weekend for the call, we had a great time! Got to attend Luke McCrary's wedding (my friend Megan killed in 2004 by drunk driver...her brother), had dinner with good friends for Hollie's Birthday, attended church at my parents church, went to TPAC to see Camelot and went to a homecoming party for my cousin Jordon who just got home from Iraq. Full weekend and had a lot of fun, but never really stopped thinking about our baby. Normal, I guess. So, we will keep you all posted, as usual, as soon as we hear anything. Keep praying for peace for both Eric and I and for E and for health and a safe delivery for the baby and E. Love you all!

Ah yes, the waiting. Waiting involves time, and time is that strange phenomenon that cannot be stopped, cannot be predicted, and seems to have it's own schedule. Never ours. So we wait. And waiting is good. Gives us time to think, time to do some other things.

I have learned that waiting is not so bad, so long as it does not turn into the other "W" word...worry. That is when I have issues. And need hair color.

Your Mom and I said a short prayer tonight...for E, and you and Eric. and the baby.

Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap (on the table) tap, tap, tap.....

Worry not...you both are ready. Ready for the Blessings to come. for the challenge, and for the promises. Ready to follow God's plan, and ready to wait.
Dad

I stumbled on your site via weebles wobblog and can't imagine the waiting and how you must feel. We are waiting right now but don't know what stage we are in, I think I like it better that way. Just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you and wish you the best.
