Tuesday, December 9


Well, we have been really busy the last few weeks. I have not gotten a lot of chance to post on here. I started working for Aetna on Dec. 1. Aetna is a health insurance company, and from now till about mid April I will be in training to become a customer service representative that deals with medical providers questions about how peoples benefits work, and how their claims are coming along. So I am excited about that. God has been good to be and brought a relief of the morning sickness, and that has been really good.
I am currently 15 and a half weeks pregnant, and getting more and more excited everyday. The baby is growing, and my belly is starting to do the same. I feel like I am getting rather huge, but people still say they can't tell. I had another appointment on Friday, and the heartbeat was 156 bpm. It sounded nice and strong, and the doctor said it sounded good. All my blood work came back from my last appointment with no problems, so that is a praise. I found out that I am O+, and I was a little surprised. I thought I was A+. We find out what the baby is on Jan 9, if the baby cooperates. They say sometimes they cross their legs and you can't see. I sure hope he/she will be nice and let us get a good look. We opted out of the downs syndrome testing, as we are not going to get an abortion, and do not really want to be pushed if the test comes back positive. It our baby has Downs Syndrome, then we will love him or her just the same.
I put my very first Christmas decoration up, a pretty wreath with snowmen in it, on our front door today. I am still looking around for an ornament that has a bride and groom on it with the year, but do not know if I am going to find it.
This is one of my favorite times of year, with all the glisten and pretty music, and the hustle and the bustle, and there are some very beautiful quiet moments where I just sit back and think about the Greatest Gift, as well as all His continued gifts. Health, the baby, a happy marriage, good jobs, great family, and the thought struck me this year, that Christmas isn't just about the one time gift of Jesus being born, but the gifts that He gives us every day that were made possible through the whole salvation plan. Just when I thought I would not learn any more about the meaning if Christmas. It is hard to believe that there are just 14 days left, but we are content with where God has us, and feeling very blessed thinking about the Greatest Gift Giver, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Merry Christmas!!
