Early Morning

I'm borrowing this from my friend Molly who used to be a youth group leader with my Mom (I used to call her my Mom's friend, but since I'm now well over the age of 21 I suppose she would consider me an adult and therefore a friend) who borrowed it from one of her favorite blogs.  I've feeling contemplative on this early Friday here it goes.

Whether we liked it or not, we all "sprang forward" with the change to daylight savings time in the USA this past Sunday. There is lightness and brightness slipping in as spring approaches, so let us consider what is springing forth in our lives right now.

Name 5 things that are springing forth, possibly including:

What you hope for:

An infinite amount of hopes for Natalie and her life, but on a smaller scale, I hope for a smooth transition for our family as Craig returns to work on Monday and I start my ten weeks at home with Natalie and Angie.
And of course...for my NCAA bracket to be better than Craig's so I can win the bet.

What you dread:

Being alone next week and the potential range of postpardum emotions that could accompany that transition.  I've already planned lots of activities (photos, doctor's visits and Mike coming home) to occupy our week so that I don't feel so isolated.
What you observe:

Angie abandoning her breakfast and hustling upstairs at the first cries of Natalie, whom I left peacefully asleep on her daddy's chest on our bed so that I could steal a few moments alone with coffee and the computer.  She really is her sister's best protection.
What is needed:

In the grand scheme of things...patience, prayer and perseverence.  On a much smaller house to be cleaned and scrubbed to satisfy my ever growing OCD.

What is intangible:

How much I love this little girl.

I am honored to call you a friend.
