In God's Hands

Some days it's hard for me to believe that things will eventually get better.

I've heard...
"Ashley it's so worth it."
"As soon as you hold your child, you'll forget all of the pain and suffering."
{i trust you but it's hard for me to believe...right now}
"Yes, you'll have another one."
{are you sure about that?!}
"The morning sickness should pass?"
{yeah, yeah...i'm well into my second trimester and see no relief, but thanks}

I came across the above quote the other day.
It's not anything I haven't heard before. 
Everyone says this in so many words, right?
But it hit. 
The plan for my life far exceeds the circumstances of my day.
I plan on staying strong for our little nugget...
and will not allow myself to get down {as hard as that may be}.

I promise this won't be the topic of my blog for long.
I'm sure a few of you don't mind the baby talk, but when it's all I'm doing
it can be a bit, well, repetitive.
If you could bare with me, that would be wonderful!
While I'm laying in the hole I've imprinted on the couch
I've done some daydreaming.

I could go on for days...

Stay tuned to watch our nursery come to life!
Thanks for all the support and kind emails!
